Micro SD card causing white screen upon boot. Why!?
What is the cause for this? When I take the card out, the phone boots right up. When the card is inserted, the phone boots up, but everything is white. There are no icons at all and it does not clear up after a while either. What could possibly be wrong? My micro sd card is only a 1gb card.

Have you recently upgraded your BB to OS 4.5?

No, the software is still the original. I'll give it a try!

If you are still running OS 4.1 or 4.2 on your 8100, you may simply need to reformat your Media Card.

options > Media Card > menu > format card.

The problem is that I can't even get to the application screen to go into options > Media Card > menu > format card

Oh sorry--I did read that. if you have the card reader, you may need to format it on the PC then.
