what can i do?
If you are installing drives, you are probably using windows. I am not familiar about windows, but I played a lot with this device and I never got it bricked.
You can boot to bootloader just with vol- and power button, when the phone vibrates, you can release the power button and still hold the vol- button for some extra seconds (maybe 10 is enough). Then plug the phone to the PC and try `fastboot devices`. If you can see there you devices, you can than flash the recovery you will need, however if you cannot find here your device, your drivers are not installed correctly or your device is definitley bricked.

You wrote, that you have a stock recovery. You are able to get there? Do you know which firware revision you have installed before it got broken?
If you know the revision, you can choose your version or a higher version from this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1#post40901091
, put the UPDATE.APP to [SDCARD]/dload/UPDATE.APP and try to flash. Power off the phone, than press both vol- and vol+ buttons, press power button and when the phone vibrates, you can release the power button. The stock recovery should flash your update, or it will complains about version. If you are in this stage, I think your phone is not bricked.
