Default Broke my K65 RGB. Any way to fix it?

Warning: if you can't handle other people's stupidity, you should NOT read this.

So now that we got that out of the way, let me tell you the story of a very stupid girl. Yesterday, I found a USB OTG cable. I decided to try it out by plugging in the keyboard to my phone. It didn't work, just flashed the top row of keys very dimly with a brown-ish white tint. I realized my phone probably couldn't provide enough energy to power the board. That's when I remembered the keyboard comes with 2 cables, 1 of which just provides additional power. Here comes the mistake: I decided to use an iPad charger and plug the keyboard into it, since I thought that would provide it enough energy. It still didn't work. Instead, what it did was cycle through the default RGB profiles and nothing else. I plug it back into my computer, open Chrome, and type in "". Nothing. I try another USB port, still nothing. I tried every single USB port on my computer and none of them worked, instead Windows gave me an error saying it couldn't recognize the USB device and that it malfunctioned last time it was plugged in. "I f*cked up", I thought to myself. I flip over the keyboard and read: "5V 1A Max". I check the iPad charger. 5.1V 2.1A. Do I need to say more?

If there is a fix for this, I would GREATLY appreciate it since I typed this whole thing on a crappy rubber dome keyboard (not even RGB, darn) and my secondary (school) keyboard won't come until next week (Anne Pro).
