I'll take a punt that it could be in DFU if the screen is blank, try holding hold power & home and hopefully the Apple logo will appear, if so just allow to reboot.

Yeah and hold both buttons down for a good 8-15 seconds till you see the logo. Good Luck

A.) Close iTunesHelper.exe from Task Manager under Processes. (And rerun Greenpois0n) B.) DFU mode makes it appear off, but if you open iTunes, it'll say its in restore mode.
