How old is this iPad? What version of iOS was it running? Have you tried holding the home+power button down to see what happens?

Do you have AppleCare on it? If so, take it back to your nearest Apple Store and have them try to figure out whats going on..

If the various buttons and plugging into the computer and iTunes doesn't make it happy, there's not much more you can do to debug it. If it was an older iPad out of AppleCare warranty, then you could try breaking it apart to see whats going on or something, but for something within the warranty period, you're better of having Apple take a look..
