Question about Garmin GPS
I recently updated (December 31st) and when I connected it into my car....the startup screen "Garmin" came on and hasn't turned off since. Except for loss of battery power. Thank you, Pete I just did a "hard reset" and am getting the same "Garmin" logo froze.
All Garmin users,
There is no easy solution for this except to return your unit to the nearest Garmin outlet. You need to have very special equipment called an E-Prom burner or writer which only Garmin have. With this equipment they re-programmed (restore) the operating system back on your specific Garmin unit and model.
The problem why anybody can't do it is because there is no way you can access your Garmin unit from a pc or mac if the operating system is lost or damage on your Garmin, for the simple reason your pc or mac can't reconize the device that is pluged in, because there are no communication platform between the two devices.
As simple as that, life with it or send your Garmin gps to an autherized professional Garmin dealer.

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.
Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.
There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:
I hope that helps.

Try resetting the unit and also charge it using only the wall charger overnight.
Here's how to reset -it just puts everything back to factory settings -
1- Turn unit on WHILE HOLDING your thumb in the lower right corner as shown in picture.
PLEASE Take the time to vote me up this is my only reward for trying to help.

SOURCE: stuck on asus logo on startup??
Same problem here with my wife's Asus laptop. Called Asus and they said to unplug charger, remove the battery in the back, hold down the power button for 10 seconds. Then, replace battery, then charger, then press the power button and wait for startup. First time it got stuck at the windows loading bar screen for like 5 min. which is abnormal. Did a hard power down (press and hold power button til it shuts off) then restarted again. That time it worked and all is well so far. Could have been due to a static charge as she was on our couch with our dog backing up movies so charge might have entered through the CD/DVD drive opening. (?) Not sure, but if you are sitting on a static-prone couch with your laptop its probably best to sit on top of a bounce sheet.
