Hi johnsondubula,

You should try this:
1. Connect your blackberry to your computer through usb cable
2. If you are using windows 32bit open app loader.exe from "C:\program files\commonfiles\research in motion\app loader\" or if your using windows 64bit open app loader.exe from "C:\program files(86x)\commonfiles\research in motion\app loader\"
3. When app loader open, click next and then connect, your blackberry should stop blinking & start to boot normally. Then close the app loader, let your blackberry boot until it start normally.

Let me know if it works & please click solve and like.
