    Let me first say I hope you had a backup because the hard reset will lose everything that you have added.

    That being said, On the back plate and/or on the bottom edge of the back plate there is a small hole marked with reset. After you have powered off (or removed the battery to hard power off) put the point of the stylus into the hole and press the switch inside while you power up the PPC. It will reload the operating system just like rebuilding a pc partition gone bad. It also has the effect of reformating both the internal storage and the mini-SD.

    Good Luck.

    Cool

    Actually hard reset is accomplished (since you can't get to the desktop) by holding the two - buttons to the left and right of the windows and ok buttons and then pressing the reset button with the styli. Then press Y for yes to hard reset and restore it back to factory. You don't have to provision the phone with your cell company. You WILL lose all your added software/data but I've done a hard reset with my storage card in and it didn't format it but I would take it out just in case.
