What model of htc do you have?
Dumb question, have you taken the battery out?
and a light should come on when its charging but doesnt?

it is more than likely possible to recover as long as nothing is damaged, i had a bootloop virus after trying to root, i had a friend fix it for me but all he did was flash the stock ruu using adb which was a pain in the ace because adb couldnt find the phone and the stock ruu was a Beach.

um, if none of those work, try a different cable i guess? trying to see if it is just an easy fix before you have to do anything 'fun'

Let it sit on the charger for a day (24 hours) and then try to turn it on, this has been known to work. If this doesn't work then you may need to send it in. Could be bad battery or motherboard.

Have you performed the 3 finger salute for about 10 seconds? It drains all power so you know if your toast. Hold the volumes and power.
