If you have a password lock on your phone and it is turned on then the computer won't recognise the phone. It will only show in My Computer if this is turned off.

If you've explored all software options and the problems doesn't resolve, it's an issue with the logic board or dock connector, so ultimately if you want to resolve it, one of these components needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty apple will likely give you a new one. If you're out of warranty you can attempt a self-repair if you're comfortable with opening devices like that, there are iPhone Repair guides that show you how. Before you should consider if it's big enough of an issue to take the risk of breaking things further or if you can deal without syncing the iphone.
