That usually indicates the battery is completely drained. Keep it charged for a while, It may take up to 4 hours or so. I don't think the battery is a goner. Give it time and let us know how things go.

I believe that it is the best solution 4 all BB problems.....

Pull the battery out, [wait 20 seconds], pull in, and everything it is Ok.

I believe RIM has something to do with Windows, because it fix the problems the same way, only lees times needed.
