This sounds like a hardware failure in the drill itself.

Even with a end of life battery I would expect the drill to show some sign of life after a 30 minute charge.

If the drill is totally dead when you press the trigger its likely to be a lose wire, with the trigger pressed and the drill facing away from you bank the side, battery and rear of the drill with you hand and see if it shows any sign of life.

If it does this would suggest a lose connection or the brushes in the motor failing, in any case a hardware failure of this nature would require the drill to be taken into a service centre.

If you can advise me of your postcode I can advise you of your nearest service centre.
