    Hey Danny,
    First and foremost, has there been any damage to this device?

    Unfortunately, many Chinese clones are not of the greatest quality. How long ago did you purchase this device? I'm afraid there isn't any technical advice I can give you to get it up and running if the computer won't recognize it and neither the keys or screen are working.

    its only a month old....it was a brilliant phone..thought it wouldnt be...bought if from ahappydeal and when you ask them a question it takes almost 2 days for them to reply...might bring it into my local phone repair and see what they say....when i plug it in the battery charger logo comes on so the screen cant be completely gone....im usually very good with phones but its confusing me to whats gone wrong...

    That is a pretty odd situation. Have you ever rooted it or made any software changes lately?

    Did this issue start occurring immediately after root?

    I will be honest, I don't know what to suggest either. Since it's a clone, I don't know if reflashing Samsung stock ROMs would be a wise thing to do.

    Can you reboot to recovery? Power off/pull battery, and reboot by holding volume up, home and power. Release when you see logo.

    You can try. I doubt it.

    My guess is barely. If the ROM was not a true Samsung ROM, the rooting procedure may not have been correct. If that was true, it would be similar trying to root an HTC with Samsung root files.
