Throw it really hard against a brick wall. I am obviously joking...do what JustMe'd said. If that doesn't work, take a nice trip to an apple store!

wel the phone is already black screen and it doesnt do anyhting till i plug it into the computer!

Dude, just follow the instructions above. Place the device in DFU mode while connected to iTunes. If you think that your device has a malfunctioning retina display then take it to the nearest Apple Store.

Give it time. If after an hour (no, it shouldn't take that long), it's not cleared up, try it again. Yes, I am serious! If after that, it still won't load iOS and go to your homescreen, make a Genius Bar appointment with the nearest Apple Store.
