Re: itouch screen frozen
Try doing the reboot by holding the sleep button and the home button until the apple logo appears then plug into itunes and it should say "itunes has recognized an ipod which needs restoring" then follow the steps to make it good as new.
connect to itunes and click ur ipod then hit the restore button.

Turn on your iPod (in my case it would only get as far as displaying the Apple logo
Hold the power and home buttons down (the iPod will power off after 10 seconds, but keep holding those buttons down)
After the iPod powers off, release the power button (but keep holding the home button down)
After a couple more seconds, you should hear that magical “ding
dong” that means the iPod is coming back alive, and that Windows has
detected it. You may even see a little “New hardware” popup in Windows.
It is now safe to release the home button, and your iPod is in DFU mode.
Now iTunes will see it as a DFU’ed iPod and should ask you to automatically restore its firmware.
iTunes has to download the new firmware, and it takes a while, so go make a sandwich.
Press and Hold the Home button and the Power Button until it reboots. If it doesn't help try putting it in recovery mode and hook it to itunes.
here is the procedure.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.
