my blackberry 9800 (torch) is dead...help!!


I've had my BB 9800 for more or less 2 years now. Recently I forgot to recharge it and it wouldn't charge or show any light. I've just bought a new battery, thought that it might solve the problem but it didn't.
Could you please help me? Is there a way to revive it or is it time to let it go?
