[Q] Stuck in recovery mode; no buttons working
I have a Google Galaxy Nexus and was using it last night (8/11)--it was a bit slow, as it has been for a few weeks, so I shut it down and hope restarting may help. When I started it back up, it was stuck on the "Google" word for about an hour and then I suppose lost power. I was not near a computer to plug it in.
When I got home, I plugged it into my pc to charge, then read online to hold down Power + Up + Down, which I did. I got to the Recover console with the "start" and little Android guy and the white arrows. However, no matter what I press (power, up, down) nothing happens. I cannot get past this screen. Also, my pc was trying to find drivers for it and couldn't. What should I do? And is there a way to preserve anything on the phone? I have not modified the phone in any way (rooted or whatnot).
