Blackberry 9900 Bricked - won't turn on, won't connect to computer

Prior to last week, I had no issues with my Blackberry 9900 (on Rogers). It worked perfectly, and I was very happy with it.

 

Then last week, my bb battery was low when I went to sleep. In the morning, I went to turn it on, and it turned on, gave the "battery drained- turning off handheld" message, and turned off. I went to charge it, and it  wouldn't charge, nor would any lights turn on. I attempted a battery pull, but this did nothing. I then tried using my friend's  (full) battery in an attempt to start the phone up, but it wouldn't start up. I tried plugging the phone into my computer and changing the OS, but this did nothing. I tried plugging the phone into my computer both with and without the battery, and neither worked. 

 

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

 

I don't know any specifics about the software for the phone as it won't turn on.

I'll try that. It might be a while though, as I have a mac.

No luck. It just won't show up on the dropdown list.

In the crackberry link, the 4th step fails- the phone just won't turn on.

I can't get my computer, or the windows one that I have, to recognize my blackberry.

Can you force the detections?
