Default [Q] Computer Recognizes but won't turn on

Hey,

I just got a htc one of ebay and it doesn't turn on,
I've tried holding down the power and volume buttons with no success.

My computer makes the usb plugged in noise when i plug it in and then a few seconds later makes the disconnect noise, and it will keep doing this.

any advice?

tip in the command prompt "adb devices" to see if your device is recognized

Try shining a bright light on the proximity sensor and holding power and volume down

@Boachti
There is no devices listed :\

@nateboi81
I tried that, does a torch of another phone count as bright?

I would probably try a bigger light source like a lamp or maybe hold it up high to a light in a room. Just to make sure that doesn't fix it

I tried with my room light but no luck. I don't have the charger it came with though, so I'm thinking that help? I have a 1.5a charger but the phone only wants 1a :\
