Phone went crazy, now I can't get in...help!

Hi, so I have a Galaxy S2, rooted and unlocked. I think it's on Android 2.3, but I'm not sure. So it was working fine about an hour ago. I set it down, then when I went to pick it up, it was going crazy entering the 7 key on the lock screen over and over.... I hit OK, it said wrong password of course, kept typing the number 7 (I could see the key blinking). I finally had to power it off to get it to stop. When I powered it back on, it wouldn't accept my original password. I've tried power cycling it again, no dice. Tried all the "default" passwords I can think of with no luck. I'm really frustrated because I'm a consultant and use a timesheet app to track my hours at various clients throughout the month. Without that app it's going to be a nightmare trying to reconstruct where and when I worked this month. I really really don't want to have to do a factory reset.

My one glimmer of hope is the fact that I have it rooted, but when I plug it in, it doesn't show up in my computer. I normally have to press the USB connect option when I connect it before the computer sees it.

Does anyone have any idea how this could happen, and more importantly, if there's any way for me to recover without factory resetting?
