It was my first time to plug it in and charge it. That was going fine until while installing the Best Buy disc that comes with it my computer suddenly restarted. Now a bubble pops up saying that USB divice attached to the computer has malfunctioned and Windows can't recognize it.

I'm assuming certain things as I provide these solutions:

you can try to see if there is a bug fix for it go online put the manufacturs name and the model # of your player in the search bar if there is a fix for it their web page will tell you how to install it.if not? it sounds like th battery could actually be dying..just because the icon shows it at full charge doesn't actually mean that it is..the only way to know that for sure would be to have the battery tested but that would req taking the player apart and that's not a job for beginners..my advice? back up all of your tunes and buy a new one..your best/cheapest bet
Has the battery died and when did you notice this happen? Unfortunately you aren't able to remove the battery from the ipod touch and so your best bet if it does not charge is to check your warranty to see what it covers. You may also try to have it repaired by Apple through their website.
This is a common issue with that player. You will need to reset it. Leave the top button in the "ON" position until it drains the battery. This is the only way to reset the player. Once the screen goes black and doesn't turn on again, it is drained. Then plug it back in to charge. If this doesn't work, take your receipt/gift receipt to the place of purchase and exchange/replace. Don't want to take your chances with another one? Return it and use the money to buy a Sansa player. They are the next best thing to an iPod, without the price. We've never had an issue with them (knock on wood!). Good luck!!
try holding down the centre button and the menu buttons at the same time until the apple logo apprears this should now restart the ipod, you may have to plug it in to attempt to charge it if the battery has died, good luck!!
i was trying to charge my zen on a cpu at work that did NOT have the zen installation disc installed on it. the lightning bolt over my battery sign indicated my zen should have been charging, however it did not. later that night i plugged my zen into my own laptop at home, the one that i installed my zen to in the first place, and it worked fine.
Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge normally, just enough so that it can come on and sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, wait few minutes, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.
Hi, This sounds like your battery may be going out. Try plugging it into a wall charger to see if it comes on and stays on.
Your circuit board may have a problem. Try doing the reset by holding the menu and action keys until the screen goes dark. Then quickly hold the action and play keys until you see a check mark and disk mode. If you can get the iPod to go into disk mode, the circuit board is probably OK and it is just the battery dying.
When it is disk mode, connect it to a wall charger to get to charge up or connect it to your 'puter to restore it. Hope that helps.
if you turned it on before you charged it when you got it, that may be the problem, i would take it back to the store, get a new one, and charge it immidiately and make sure you use the disc to install it
