Plug the thing in next time.

BlackBerry® Desktop Manager will not display a connected status when the BlackBerry smartphone is in this state. Continue to run the application loader and do not select to option to back up and restore the BlackBerry smartphone data during the installation process.

This will perform a clean reload of the BlackBerry Device Software as an application level connection cannot be made.
