So i was messing around with my tuning, tried dropping it down to drop c when it is set up for standard tuning.
Something happend, something to do with the springs im sure,basically when i try to play the g b or e string no sound comes out. Just dead notes.

Can someone help?

I would assume that's because the E, G and B strings are too low now. You've got to lower the spring tension so it equals the string tension. I'm not exactly sure how to do it(I need to learn how, since I have a decent FR-equipped guitar now, but I haven't got around to it and am more than content in Eb/Drop C# for now. xD) but I believe if you just take one of the springs out and adjust the others it should be fine. Watch out though, if one of them pops out in on you it can hurt like a b!tch...xD I'd take it in to get set up if you plan on staying in Drop C.

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

is the bridge balanced?

if the bridge is balanced, not lifted ass end in the air.
or sunken into the guitar, then the strings should ring out.

so you need a balanced bridge
and then adjust the action if needed.
