I've tried hardware reset. and power and volume buttons. no change. once it actually went as far as the "android" screen and hung there.
I've tried syncing with my PC but the download failed.
I'm not really computer savvy. Please help
To be honest, if you have time left on your warranty, I'd just go for that option, as you've said you're not computer savvy. Most of the stuff I've read since I got in from work today has said that this sort of thing is a hardware issue anyway!
