Mpguino not fully starting, or locking up

My mpguino started acting up lately. Yesterday it reset itself on the way to work, but I figured not a huge deal. This morning as I left, it wouldnt work and I reset it, then realized it had somehow lost all its settings. I reset the parameters and it worked fine on the way to work. At lunchtime I tried to reflash the program (even the original program before changing the cursor position though it shouldnt have made a difference) several times, but it just acts really weird. Sometimes it wants to restart itself several times. When it does stay running, sometimes it goes to the contrast screen, other times not. Try to push any buttons and either one button works then it locks up, or it is totally locked up. It says it always is a successful flash.

I took it apart and all the connections are good. I wonder if anything got corrupted in the firmware? If thats what it sounds like, how do I go about fixing it? Or any other ideas?
