Default [Q] Bricked Phone When Updating

So I had my phone rooted on ME7 but I was having issues so I attempted to update to 4.3 using Odin. The update failed and now my phone will no longer turn on. My PC still makes the noise for a device connecting when I plug it in so I am hoping there is still a chance I can fix my phone. If I hold the power button my PC will make the device disconnecting noise as well and it again makes the device connecting noise when holding the power button after that. Any thoughts?
