New HTC Inspire just froze and now won't turn on...blank, black screen...nothing

I tried closing Pandora and it wouldn't respond and I had to "force close".  It did some buzzing and I finally got the phone to turn off and now nothing.  It won't turn on!  My phone is 4 days old!!!!  Any suggestions??

Have you tried a battery pull. My inspire has frozen a few times but when I shut it down, it does come back on. You may just need to return it. I'm sure it won't happen a second time. I love my Inspire.

+1 on the battery pull.  If pulling the battery, then replacing allows you to reboot, exchange the phone for a replacement, and you should be good to go.  This is a known hardware defect with some HTC phones, it has nothing to do with the Android OS.

If the problem is persistant (and it sounds like it is) exchange the phone (if less than 30 days old) or send it for repair.  This sounds like a hardware defect.
