Did I just fry my laptop?

So I accidentally touched a USB port with a headphone jack. The laptop turned off right away and won't turn back on. Anyway to fix thus without buying a new laptop or am I screwed?

Tried unplugging it and taking the battery out and holding down the power button for 30 seconds?

Good news on the laptop, Chizip!

Well then... I thought I'd seen it all. Never heard of that shutting a laptop down before...
