Have you already attempted to reset the iPod? If not I would greatly recommend doing so. Below I have posted a step by step on resetting an iPod just in case you need the information. If for any reason this does not resolve your issue please do let me know. :)
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

Ok so this morning I turned my laptop on and the screen was all pixilated and weird. I couldn't use my mouse and so I pressed the off button. When I later tried to turn my laptop on a black screen...


If you hear the computer booting up and sound, then yes, there may be a problem with the lcd. Unless you are VERY comfortable working with repairing computers I wouldn't suggest attempting a repair yourself.

Ipod screen went black, and now i cant turn it on


Hold the top button and the bottom button at the same time. My 8G iPod Touch does that all the time. It just means it's completely dead. If you just got it it synced with iTunes, it will say that it needs iTunes again. It should be fine though. Let it charge over night then. That's what I did. Mine was fine the next day.

try the reset option
press Enter and Menu at the same time until you see the apple on the screen
if the battery are still low you should try to update the firmware with itunes. if the battery are ok you should be ok but if the problems happen again run a firmware upgrade with itunes
