ah, the ole flying bridge. I used to own one and the easiest thing to do before you go insane is to take it to a music shop and have them string it for you. Or you'll spend hours tuning and eventually settle for mediocrity.

I hate tremolo's! i would rather play guitar than deal with that ****. i only have one guitar that has a trem, but i blocked it. So it is essentially a fixed bridge guitar. Floyds suck for changing string gauges and dropped tuning on the fly, they are more trouble than they are even worth.

There's a special procedure for tuning up new strings on a Floyd Rose bridge:
http://www.ibanezrules.com/tech.htm#Tuning

If you're still having problems, you may need to set up your guitar -- there are ibanez-specific instructions on that same site, or you can take your axe to a shop you trust.

Specifically, if you follow the tuning procedure I just gave you and still have the same problem, you need to screw in the claw (in the back of the guitar) or add a spring -- either of these options will increase the amount that your springs are pulling against the strings.
