Maybe you have installed a bad app or smething, or are using warez.

Have you downloaded games from any internet sites? or file sharing tools?

Try restarting the device without MMC or format your MMC.

The problem could be a number of reasons, but possibly bad third party software or warez.

Try to start it in safe mode. Press and hold the pen key soon as you press power. You can also try to take out sim and mmc and battery for a few minutes and try again. Works for me as I get the same error every now and then.

Exclamation N-gage Start-up problem

I tried all these before. still same error message.
all my games are warez. i tried the pen holding boot up technique, ..didn't work.
took out the MMC...still didn't work.
took out the sim, mmc etc..waited a few minutes, then put them back....still didn't work.
The battery can't even charge up anymore. should charge if phone is off. but can't charge eitherways. No nokia service center here. just some basic service centers.....they couldn't fix it.
what is going on? I'm gonna smash this phone and send it in bits to NOKIA

Hmmm, well I see your point.

How come they couldnt flash it at the nokia centre?

You mite wanna try a place like Computer Exchange if you are living in the UK, they can flash it.

Otherwise, i dont know and you mite have to get urself a new phone.

Sounds dubious to me.
If there's a legal nokia support centre they should sell Ngage games there as well. If they don't sell Ngage games it may be because the Ngage is technically not launched in your country at all, meaning the local Nokia Centres won't have the means to handle Ngage requests at all.

When this happened to me, my friend told me to erase the system.ini in the system files. I follow what he tolds me and it pretty works for me!

Ehh, dumbass, don't type in 12345 if it's not your security code, you're supposed to type in that. If you get it wrong, then you're really fucked.
