Does the BE300 have its own gx.dll?
If not, that file is needed and will need to be preserved somehow between soft reboots(if it is wiped as you say).
As for the screen going blank:
First, be sure to have enough memory free for the Emulator and the Game rom to load (a couple of megs at least).
Second, Be sure to have Game ROMs that are based on Mame Version .36. Newer romsets may not work. ( I am working on that one).
Third, Be sure to try the older games first, such as frogger, puckman, and tempest. These are known to work correctly on every device (with the .36 ROM).

Hope that helps.
