My iphone won’t turn on and itunes won’t recognize it!?

My iphone died, so when i plugged it in it started acting funny, some apps thumbnails were not showing up, it was REALLY slow, so i turned it off and tried turning it back on… and nothing. I got the apple logo for about 5 seconds, then black. I’ve tried the force quit, it didn’t work. So I tried plugging it into itunes (I have windows vista) to reset and restore and now my itunes won’t recognize it at all.
this happened a few weeks ago too, but i got itunes to recognize and after 4 tries, i got it to reset and restore. Not really sure what to do now though since itunes is not working…?

    Hold down the Home and Power button until it comes up with the connect to iTunes screen (the one with the USB going into the iTunes logo). You will have to hold them both down for a long time but don’t worry, this should fix it.
