    Try to get it in DFU mode and then restore in iTunes. In case you need it, here are instructions for DFU.
    DFU mode
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode.

    Alternative Method:
    Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connects and disconnects.
    Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
    Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.

    when i remove it from laptop power and plug it into the wall the white apple logo comes up and then scrolling text comes and goes then it keeps refreshing

    getting it into dfu is easy but after that it wont restore

    Completely remove iTunes and Apple Mobile Device support and then reinstall iTunes, and you may have to use 7.5 itunes.
