Try restoring from the latest backup in your PC that has the hosts file.
If it still doesn't work, try downloading TinyUmbrella and do Kick Out of recovery or go into the Advanced tab and make sure the "Set hosts to Cydia on exit" thing is unchecked. If it's now, uncheck it your self.
If that doesn't work, bring it to the Apple Store.
One quick question, have you jailbroke this device in the past?

Oy. Sorry I saw this so late, y'all.
So, your hosts file is a hidden file in Windows.
Go to Start, and go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
.. the enter. It'll open your hosts file.
Just open it in Notepad, and ERASE THE LINE that has gs.apple.com in it (probably looks like 220.127.116.11 gs.apple.com).
Save it, reboot your computer.
Done. Fixed. Bam.
