Default Hard Reset doesn't work...

Hello,

For some reason my Galaxy S (Eclair) decided to quit on Saturday. When I try to boot it up, the startup screen displays properly but then the screen goes black. The two menu buttons light up if touched but nothing actually works.

I tried a hard reset using the vol up + home + power and even that did not work, it does the same thing after the reboot.

I have already lost videos of a friend who passed away recently, now I am just pissed. Any solutions??

try flashing a different rom, i'm sure flashing another rom and factory resetting does not erase what is stored in your internal memory.
