Hi Charliem,

If you have BlackBerry OS on your PC you can initiate a software reload. If you have older version of the OS you can do the update and it should he able to fully wake the device.

If by "slot" you mean the USB port, do you mean it is broken?

If so, you can always try to have the USB port repaired, otherwise, there is not much you can do.

The only thing I can advise, is to try the process again.

Which solution have you tried, there a couple of things posted above -- and if you can be specific about what you've already done, I'll be glad to review and help.
