LG Extravert Will Not Power Up

I have a month-old LG Extravert that will not power up.  Here are the symptoms:

1.  When I plug it into a computer (USB)  the LG logo appears on the screen as if it is alive.

2.  When I connect it to my Windows 8.1 computer, the LG logo appears, but my computer does not recognize it and gives a sound every few seconds after which the LG display pulses.

3.  The power up problem began to occur after I connected it to the above computer and experienced the issue described.

3.  The phone is fully charged, as it was connected all night to another computer.

4.  I press and hold the power on button and nothing happens.

5.  I have tried removing the battery for 10 minutes and replacing, but it still will not power up.

What can I do to fix this issue?

Thanks for any help.

One more bit of information:

No matter which computer I attach the LG Extravert to, the same thing shows.  The device shows up briefly in device manager under "Other Devices" as "LG CDMA USB Modem" then goes away (accompanied by a tone on the computer).

Re: LG Extravert Will Not Power Up

Hi, there.  
I know this is an extremely old question, but I found it when I was searching for a solution to the same issue.  What eventually worked for me was charging the phone using the wall charger instead of the USB charger...the USB charger wouldn't work with a severely drained battery, but the wall wart worked wonders.
