    My HTC's screen is not turning on. I tried shutting it down, but the touch sensitivity doesn't register. i tried plugging it in, but that didn't turn it on. It does charge when it's plugged in, so I already tried plugging it into my laptop which left it charging, but i couldn't access it. Please help.

    The HTC M8 is an Android phone not a Windows phone...I think you posted under the wrong section. I'll move you to the Android section.

    So is the phone on or off? You say the screen isn't turning on but you say you then tried turning it off but the touch screen isn't registering. To turn it off you need to press and hold the power button, same to turn it on.

    If the battery went totally flat then you need to plug it into a computer and let it trickle charge for a day, don;t try to turn it on or anything but just let it sit there and slowly charge for a half day or full day.

    Sorry to shoot down your post, but there's indeed a Windows Phone version of HTC One M8. Same phone, same hardware, but with different OS.

    it wont turn on, and the touchscreen is registering, because wen i double tap the screen the phone vibrates, and the screen wont turn on. its obviously not in shut down mode, but i think there is something disconnected because when i shook it i heard something rattling

    Then you will need to take it apart or take it a cell phone repair shop.
