    Yeah, so this phone is old and I think it might have just finally died, but it's really starting to **** me off so I figured I'd ask anyway. I have done the following;

    -Taken out the battery
    -Taken out the battery and SIM card
    -Charged the battery to 100%
    -Attempted to restart the phone after being 100% charged
    -Held down the Volume Up, Home, and Power button to restart it while the phone was off
    -Held down the Volume Down, Home, and Power button to restart it while the phone was off
    -Plugged it into my computer (Windows) but it didn't register on my laptop

    I really don't know what else there is to do. It's stuck on this stupid glowing Samsung logo and the buttons on the bottom are all lit up and it's been like this for about 12 hours now. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Welcome to Android Central! Try booting into Recovery and wiping the cache partition: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Also try removing the SD card, since a corrupt card can cause various issues.
