Asha 200 BRICKED

Welp,bought my asha 200 a couple hours ago,plugged it in.Nokia Suite says theres an update,i try to update but it fails on Win7.Changed it to compatiability mode for WinXP SP2,it got into the backing up stage,went to grab a drink,when i came back it says it failed,telling me to replug the USB.I do,and now it keeps tossing me this error.


Hardware ID missing

Windows cannot identigfy the device plugged into the Nokia USB Flashing Parent


For assistance,contact the hardware manufacturer.


Help is very much appreciated..

I tried uninstalling Nokia Suite,PC Suite and nokia connectivity driver.


Removed its battery,put it back in after 5 minutes,doesnt want to reboot,when i press the power button,all buttons light up and the computer detects it for a couple seconds,and it throws me this error.
