RE: HP 50G "Bad Argument Value"
I'd suggest using the numeric solver (ROOT) instead of SOLVE or SOLVEVX because those use CAS logic to look for a symbolic result. ROOT uses numeric methods to find one root at a time near a given initial guess.

In RPN mode:
1 (or whatever guess you want to start at)
ROOT --> 1.07109628939

With an initial guess of -1 you get another root, -0.941418703497

Also try an initial guess of 65. Finding ALL the roots is left as an exercise for the student. ;-)
