Default [Q] Desire bricked

Hi,

After trying to install a stock rom through RUU, the screen of my phone went black, and since then the phone doesn't start any more. The battery is full, and when I press the power button, it vibrates once, but nothing happens. I tried accessing the recovery mod, and the bootloader, but nothing works. My phone is bricked, and I want to know if there is any software solution to unbrick it.
Could any one help me with this?

Thanks for any answer

Sounds like you flashed an incompatible RUU (You flashed an SLCD RUU meant for an amoled device or vice versa)

It's harder to get back to life, but possible.

Try the 2.3.3 GB RUU, details in the troubleshooting guide at the top of Q&A.

Very detailed guide here, but I don't think you need a goldcard if you just use the 2.3.3. RUU so skip that part.
