    Gingerbread update causes display not to function

    I updated to Gingerbread today. The phone works fine if I don't let the display shut off after startup, but as soon as it shuts off it won't turn on again. The phone effectively freezes. If I get a call, the display doesn't turn on and also the phone just keeps vibrating until I remove the battery. I DON'T want to factory reset yet again. I just got this phone as a replacement for my old D2, which I had for a year, because the keyboard wasn't working right on my old one. I'm getting really frustrated with the Droid 2.

    Edit at 1:58 pm EST: It works fine now that I removed my SD card, so I'm assuming there is an app or two causing it to malfunction. (Most of my apps are on the SD card.) Anyone have ideas on what that might be so I can uninstall?

    My droid 2 might as well be a paper weight after this update this morning.

    Freezing.

    Locking up.

    Can't bring "out of sleep".

    Browser locks up.

    Desktop that will now try to rotate locks up.

    Had to remove battery several times in the last hour to revive or sometimes it will let me hold the power button to restart (like it used to during an occasional problem) but this sucks now. What in the He|| is up with this update? I won't let the update install on the gf's phone until I find out what's up. I told her to keep knocking it back 2 hours until I let her know.

    ANY HELP????????????????

    This upgrade is horrible. I reset it to factory but still has the upgrade. It worked fine for a few hours, now freezing up again. Any ideas on how to undo the update?

    If you figure out the app let me know.
