The Infamous White Screen
I'm new here - very new in fact and I am quite..stuck. This is my first android, first smart phone in fact - so everything is quite new. I admit that I am a noob. Pride has no place here at the moment. I just want my phone back..
In any case, my phone was acting rather sluggish today so I decided to restart it (the normal way) and when it came back on - it froze on the white HTC screen and refused to move past that. I have been reading around on this forum, other forums, google, and so on to find answers and help, but I'm quite lost in all the jumble. I have made it to the bootup screen and I have tried to do a recovery, which failed. I am hesitant to do much else because I am afraid I will royally screw this up. If so, I will be without a phone for a very, very long time. :/
Anyway, on the screen this is what I see:

<VOL UP> to previous item
<VOL DOWN> to next item
<POWER> to select item
I also admit that I haven't done a factory reset yet. As I said, this is a new phone and I haven't backed my photos up yet and would hate to lose them. Although, I understand if there is no other way.
Thank you advance (though more will come) for any help that anyone can offer.
