Press and hold volume up, home key simultaneously then power the phone on, a loader comes out and choose wipe or full reset option then the phone automatically restart. Now everything is reset to it's original default settings.

A full reset is sometimes referred to as a hard
reset. Perform a full reset when you want to clear
all settings, programs and data from RAM. A full
reset deactivates the battery the power button
does not function until the battery is reactivated.

Caution if you perform a full reset, your
Samsung Galaxy Europa returns to its default
settings and looses all information that is not
recorded in ROM.

This can be done in two ways:
1).In Idle mode, open the application list and select
Settings -> Privacy -> Factory data reset -> Reset
phone -> Erase everything.

2). When the device is turned off, simultaneously
press the Volume key up and down, and then
press End / Power. When an exclamation mark
appears, press the Home key to reboot.

Doesn't help much if the screen is locked. Smiley Wink

Try doing the key combination that the others have mentioned; you might just get lucky and manage to get it into recovery mode.
