If you decide to, a reset is done by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.
I wouldn't reset until I was sure that the device was not responding, i.e. maybe after overnight. Also, make sure it's plugged in.HP DV7 Laptop, Windows Vista, iPhone 3G 8GB with 3.0
