you might try and connect the device via serial port and see if bootloader offers anything useful OR prints some error messages. quite often COM1 is a debug port, so if you open hyperterminal app you might see something useful.

other than that - well, you can try to reinstall it again, perhaps something went wrong
You could always try the following
Pop the battery out
push it back in until the first click, the battery sticks out about 3/4 cm
now press the power button
there should be a warning on the boot loader screen along the lines of battery door open
hold down the trigger and push the battery all the way
the device should reset

Failing that try
pop out the battery
hold down the trigger and the power button for a couple of seconds
while still holding down the two buttons push the battery all the way in
the device should reset

If its any consolation in my experience this is not an uncommon problem

Good luck
