Are you using the S5PC110 (Nexus S) resurrector? There's several of them.

Anyways, you don't need to hold a key combo with UnBrickable Resurrector R40 and higher.
Flash with Odin on Windows, Linux and Mac. Use JOdin3, Available in a web browser or offline

Use odin/heimdall to restore your device while in download mode if you're not able to use fastboot.

1) remove the battery;
2) insert the battery;
3) connect the phone (the tool must be already running when you plug your Nexus);
4) press the volume key (in the middle) and keep it pressed;
5) run the tool;
6) use odin (or anything you prefer).

ps. you can disconnect your phone, it will remain in download mode

Damn tinypic.com lost the image. I'll repost it tonight. If someone can get a screenshot of the resurrector in the initial state, that would be great.

Sono in italiano, mi scuso se parlo in italiano con tutti gli altri, allora:
io su ubuntu ho usato il tool consigliato qui, si accendono i 2 led di home e search. Dopodiché io riavvio in windows, senza staccare il cavo, però se apro odin, non vede nulla. Cosa sbaglio?

I apologize for speaking in italian, but I'm in emergency

You have to put your phone in "download mode" and you achieve this status with row 4...
