My iPad froze and it can't turn on. I've watched some youtube videos on how to restore my iPad. Occasionally, it worked on my friend's iPad, but not in mine.

I attached Ipad to my computer to sync.  I received a message indicating there was a new version of the software.  During the update, the Ipad crashed.  The screen on the ipad is showing the itunes icon and the USB cord. The ipad no longer shows up in my devices.   I have followed all instructions online to reset the ipad,and I uninstalled itunes and reinstalled it.  No change. The same screen appears on the ipad within seconds of turning it on....|software-update-ipad-crashed-longer-itunes-picture-ipad-shows-cord
