Actually there is a sensor responsible to tell the camera that the lens is out and ready to be used. And if the said sensor does not trip then the camera thinks that there is a prob. Try the following

1. Turn on the camera
2. Notice the movement of the lens as to which direction is it Turing while it is getting ready
3. try to pull the leans assy. a little outwords. But be gentle. Once the sensor has detected by the camera it will remain ON

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Maybe the lens movement is sticking and causing additional overload for the camera circuits, thus causing it to shut down.

You don't need any special software in order to use your camera.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
