    Nook HD+ freezing at 99%

      I've had my Nook HD+ for 8 months. Every month or so sometimes apparentely during a software update it freezes at the screen 99% and won't do anything else. It just locks up and lingers at the gray screen with 99% showing.  I have taken it into the store each time and they always end up having to do a factory reboot and I lose all my settings and basically have to start my Nook from scratch. I love using the Nook but its getting to the point I wish I had bought something else. HAs anyone else had this problem or have any suggestion for me to do at home to fix it?

          We are experiencing the same problem here. It just started this weekend. We've had the Nook since November of last year.

            We would love any suggestions as well. We got our Nook HD+ for Christmas and haven't had any trouble until today. The tablet worked fine last night and now it freezes at 99%. Is there a problem with an update? BN's solution is a factory reset which I think is ridiculous.

              I have owned my NOOK for four months and I nwo have to deregister and then register every 10 days. I am getting used to it and it take me approximately 45 minutes to register and add back my applications. This problem appears to happens after I turn the Nook back on from Power Off rather than leaving it in sleep. Also I do not recall this problem until after I chose the option to of turning my NOOK unto password protected mode.

                This happened to me too. I took my Nook back to the store and they did what they called a "hard restart" which involved killing everything and totally re-booting my entire set-up. I was pretty angry about the whole thing, because the darn thing was only a couple of weeks old.  The lady who worked with me was a pro, and I have to give her credit. She didn't try to BS her way through it - she just said that this happens occasionally, apologized, and fixed the problem, including completely reloading everything, plus working with me for an hour on some things that I didn't understand. I've had no problems since then.

                    Thank you all for the advice. 


                    I had decided yesterday evening that I had to mail my Nook back to the factory, emailed B&N for info on how to do that, and removed my SD card (I think that's what its called) and was monkeying around with it when it started up.  Like above, I had to start fresh and download everything, but that was no big deal to not having my Nook HD+ for a few weeks.
