I have the same problem on a 2nd gen ipod touch... One day it was completely lagging, so i shut it woen by pressing the home and lock button. since then it just starts to boot up and stops after 10-15 seconds. should i bring it to an apple store?
edit: i saw this on another post, it helped
Try recovery and DFU mode.
Recovery mode: Shut down the iPod, hold the home button, and plug it in. It should boot up to a screen that has a cord and an iTunes logo on it (it will look like it's booting normally). If it doesn't work and boots up normally (goes to the iPod is Disabled screen), try DFU mode:
DFU mode: Make sure the iPod is plugged into the computer. Shut down the iPod. When it shuts off, hold the home and power buttons at the same time. It should look like it's booting normally, but when it shuts off again, RELEASE the power button and CONTINUE to hold the home button. After a few more seconds, your computer should install driver software for it and it should appear in iTunes as an "iPod in recovery mode".
Once you get to one of the "recovery" modes, hit Restore.
