    I'm sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but after 20 minutes of searching, I havn't found anything. Thanks in advance for the help!

    I just got a replacement Pre (-) about a week ago. I quickly set it up with everything my other Pre had before it drowned in a pool during a family vacation (very sad). So, I installed preware, uberkernel, govnah, and a few other homebrew apps/patches; not a lot though. I had it running the preset 720/250 screenstate setting in govnah, and everything was working perfect the past few days.

    Out of nowhere (no restart, no new application installs), the touchscreen has become unresponsive and even the keyboard only takes about 1 in 10 keystrokes. It seems very laggy, and I can't figure out what is wrong. I thought about just doing a factory reset, but I can't even get the phone to be recognized by my PC (maybe because I can't click on the screen to set it at "Just Charge") through QuickInstall.

    I've done a few hard resets, the phone boots up and the display is working, but it doesn't respond to touch/gestures.

    Help? What do I do? I greatly appreciate the help. Let me know if you need any info. I'm running 1.4.5 on Sprint.

    Try the Square button + Sym button + U together when plugged into computer. That allows USB mode and may allow access through PC. You can then use novacom or quickinstall, hopefully.

    Don't overclock the Pre with Govnah, either.

    Try, uh....holding the Pre really closely to any cathode ray monitor (old TV or old PC monitor, for instance). Sometimes the static charge gets the touchscreen working. You might try wearing a sweater, walking across a carpet a few times, and touching the Pre, too.

    If all fails, try to webosdoctor it back to a new 1.4.5. It'll mean losing all your information if you haven't saved. I assume you know how to bypass Palm Profile, if needed?
