Hello i recently picked up a messed up Galaxy tab 3. It doesn't turn on at all but I can get into download mode. Only once in download mode my computer doesn't recognize it, I have Kies installed so from my understanding i should already have the drivers. Even if i get my computer to recognize it will having download mode only help me?

i can second that, galaxy tab 3 7.0 needs the cable that came with it, generic won't do, something with the pins in device.
as for kies after you install and run it first time with tab and proper cable then uninstall kies from your system but leave drivers.
alternately seach for samsung usb drivers only and install them instead of kies, then get odin going.
