my tb won't boot up

I was in the yellow and put my phone in my car to charge, nothing out of the ordinary.  when i got back into the car maybe 3 hours later i noticed the charge light was neither green, as i expected it to be, or orange, indicating a less than full charge and assumed it was not plugged in all the way.  it's d.e.a.d. so i set about charging it again - no light still.

So I try 3 different chargers, and 2 outlets and it must be getting something because the orange light flashes, the white HTC screen appears, then shuts down w/a vibe, then one more flash. repeatedly,

so i get home and put the battery itself in a charging dock and NOW, it just flashed the white HTC screen ever so much faster, over and over  and over - can't make it stop.  still quick vibes but no charge flash.  any ideas? 

Re: my tb won't boot up

If you hold the volume button down after putting in the battery and turn it on does it boot to a special screen. You can attempt to reset the device there. but other then that Not sure what to say..
