Last night my phone ran out of battery while I was working on my computer. "No problem" I thought "I've got a usb cable right here. I'll just plug it in to the computer". Only when I did so, both my computer and droid 3 died. I think there was some kind of short that fried both my phone and the computer. Now the computer I know how to test and deal with everything, the mobo is still under warranty. The phone however is another issue.
With the battery in, when I plug it into a charger the white led comes on for a second, then shuts off. Without the battery it stays on. Without the batter it does not boot to the motorola screen. With the battery it does not boot to anything. I left if plugged in with the battery in over night, but still doesn't start. I think I may have bricked it. I hope google backed up new contacts cause otherwise I have no way to get a hold of my hot date on thursday.
I'm off to work and will check this when I get home. Thanks for any help you can offer.
