I'd try restarting it again, hold down the power button for 20 seconds.

Will desktop manager recognize it? If so, back it up without the applications (you can get those back in app world) and then select update and it will reload/repair your OS, OR do the hard reset of power button, and both up and down volume buttons at the same time. hold down for about 5 or 10 seconds
