Default SIII not loading

I apologise if this issue has already come up in the forum, I couldnt find iy if it has. I have a galaxy SIII. It was sitting connected to my computer through USB happily charging. I looked over and saw it had restarted itself and it had froze on the samsung logo (post screen). I took the battery out as I couldnt power off and put the battery back in. stuck on logo. I then Took the sim card out and then powered on. same issue. Theres no sd card in the phone. I then held down the down volume control and held the home button down and powered on. it went to if you install a new os message. It stayed on downloading. I then connected it through USB and using kies tried recovering the firmware through firmware upgrade and initialise. The computer gave the message it didnt recognize the device. Download was on the screen of the phone. At the moment I have the phone plugged into the wall and it has the charging sign on the screen. I am thinking of leaving it like that over night and then keeping it unplugged for all of tomorrow and then try turning it on again. Does anyone know a remedy for the phone? has anyone experienced this issue before?

Also the phone has never been rooted.
