    Welcome to CrackBerry!

    I've moved your post, so it may be seen and addressed.

    Your problem seems to me an issue with either a bad battery, low battery that won't allow the PC to stay connected, USB with not enough power, or USB cable not able to carry the power necessary.

    First step I would take is to charge it overnight, and then try again, making sure to use a USB hub with at least 500mHz of power, and the hub not set for power saving.

    Did anything happen to the device? Was it dropped or exposed to moisture? It sounds to me like you could have hardware failure.
