So, what's the problem? Is it just that your computer is not recognizing your Bold? Did you download the latest Desktop Manager? And if needed, the USB drivers for the Bold from the Blackberry website?

The red led flashes when you receive a message. I'm not entirely clear on whether you're saying there's some problem with your red led or not...

Sounds dead to me.. Go back and get a replacement if you got it from a retailer. Have you let it charge overnight with the AC adapter?

I had a flashing red LED once on the 8100 and it was due to an really really flat battery. Try charging on mains adapter for at least an hour before trying power on.

worth a try!
