Default The Creative Zen Sleek Startup Issue

So, as it goes, I have lurked these boards unknown scouring for an answer to my plight. As of now, I have not found a solution. I am fairly sure that Creative is a company that was started just to make me lose sleep and time, being said the only thing I have gained in the process of trying to fix my player is that it could be a very nice I.D. case, if hollowed out.

It all started with the low battery screen. When I go to plug it in I accidentally hit the power button first and I am perpetually stuck with a black screen that just says 'Creative' (after the screen that has the copyright and such under a similar looking screen, also saying creative), I go into recovery and manage to shut it down to charge. Now when I try to turn it back on I still get the screen. Tried the disk cleanup, and reformatting, and now, yes now, I went for reloading the firmware. But even though the computer recognizes my player, when I'm running the firmware program it will not recognize my player. I tried running the 'fixup.exe' from the dell site and it hasn't done anything.

The most frustrating thing may be that I had a previous creative player, a jukebox, which did the same thing. So I bought this one instead, which leads me to lose much faith in Creative, because I looked for months when this happened to my last player.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
