How to fix some mysterious problems.

So.. a friend gave me an iPhone4 a while back as he was getting a newer model.. Obviously jail broken otherwise i wouldn't post on here 1 i have no idea how to even use the phone loads of black icons kept coming up then every time i turned the phone on it would say in safe mode and saying something about springboard (think that's the name) " the phone just suddenly stopped charging altogether and i just had a little Google of what i could do and then i saw someone saying plug phone into computer and restore it.. well I went to do that and the computer is not recognising the phone whatsoever.. Any ideas on what i could do? the phone is completely dead and will not turn on it hasn't been dropped or anything (my other iphone is battered and is still going) so i cant see it being any damage..

Try another charging cable. Then install itunes on the pc and use recovery/dfu mode to restore your phone.

The same cable works on my other ohone, but tried another cable anyway and still no luck...
