Green screen meaning booting problem

Hello,
I'm using my TP for two months and there were no serious problems with it since now. Today I was looking for some things by Opera browse, when - suddenly - SMS arrived [yeah, that sort of things happens]. Because of my ability to destroy everything connected [bad word..] with electricity, WM [original ROM, version 6.1] froze - after few minutes it was still insensitive to any touch [and button, including 'power off'], so I pulled out a battery and turned device on. And here starts the drama - Windows didn't want to boot, just showed green sreen with WM logo, part of start bar and stayed like this for long. Now, having some more resets done, it freezes on the green screen, not showing anything else.
Ok, I know that probably the best solution would be hard reset now [actually I guess, never did it before, don't even know where to get a 'new ROM' <- don't see it on included CD]. Of course, but I have some important data there! If there's any other way to do it, or - at least - to get back things from main memory [especially messages and contacts], please tell me how. I repeat once again: it's very important for me.

Thanks in advance,
m.

Wow, that is a bummer. The best I can offer is try to let the device boot as far as it can, and then connect to your PC. Hopefully it is loading enough info to enable active sync to connect. If you cannot boot, and it will not connect to your PC, then darkness has overtaken the land. Sorry.

Re: Green screen meaning booting problem

Huh. Whatever it was, it simply disappeared with n-th boot of the device. Now everything works perfectly, like we were in Hobbit village after beating Sauron or something.
Anyway, thanks for good word - looks it helped.

Everything backed up, of course, as soon as it started working.
Greetings,
