    I had the same problem.
    Try this:-
    Make sure it is turned off (take battery out then put it back in)
    Take out your sim card and your memory card.
    Start the Galaxy S in recovery mode - hold vol up + on/off button + home button.
    Release as soon as white writing comes onto screen.
    Recovery mode screen will appear.
    Use vol rocker to highlight choice "Reboot"
    Let it reboot.
    Hopefully that will be it


    If its the same as me then your screen will remain black BETWEEN the white Samsung writing and the actual appearence of your desktop - every time you reboot will be the same.

    At least the phone will then work and not be an expensive "door stop"

    Good luck and hope it works for you.
