This happened to me once: the 770 rebooted, and then rebooted again,
without showing the desktop.  The second reboot was successful.

The RS-MMC card is not used as RAM.  The 770 has 64 megs of built-in RAM
(plus 128 megs of built-in flash memory, used as a "hard disk").  Some
people suspect it may be faulty and have been running memtest on it.  I
do not thing there were conclusive results.
