my bold won't turn on!! Not even a red light.

so i've read up tons on this and seems lots of people have this problem. It all started a month or two ago when my bb started crashing, and instead of powering back up, would have nothing but the red light flashing twice and then pausing over and over. The only way I could start it up was to take the battery out and turn it on manually.
Then it started crashing completely, and I would have to plug it into the charger to get it to turn on. This would usually happen when i had a full battery. It didn't matter if it was running low.
It got real bad a few weeks ago and just completely crashed. I couldn't even get a red light when i did a battery pull. I left the battery out over night and in the morning I could get a red light when i plugged it into charge or toook the battery out, but it would only last for about 5 seconds and i was left with the same dead phone. I took it into a phone shop and the guy put his bold battery in it and it powered up fine, so I bought a new battery and it worked straight away. The crashing still happened, but i just lived with it.
Now it has turned off completely again and even after i left the battery out over night and have been trying all these different things recommended on the net (even though i haven't seen one post from anyone who has the exact same problem as me) but it just won't work. it won't even register when i connect it to my mac.
i don't know if it's relevant, but according to my friends my bb messenger name has a nice big red x next to it too!!
anyone know what i could do other than bin it?
