Oh my gosh it worked! I had even called tech support at the company and they didn't even offer this solution. I even went as far as to buying a new battery at their suggestion. Thank you guys so much. You guys rock!

You can hold down the on/off button for 10 seconds to turn off the archos. then turn it on again. this can be used to turn off the archos when it is not responding. Is this what you want?

A better description of the reset button is that it is a round, gold color "bump" smaller than 1/4", almost flush with the circuit board. The solution by Guest was correct - push the button for 10 seconds then reinstall the battery and the unit should now work.

Take the battery off. Just beside the 4 battery terminal connectors there is a little button about 5 mm (1/4 "). Push it with the tip of a pen for 10 seconds and voila!! Hope this helps.
