Open up the cavity and slowly tighten the springs at the back.

do what fat boy, the way a FR works is that the bridge is basically balanced between the force exerted by the strings and the springs at the back of the guitar. so when you tighten the strings (by tuning up) you are putting more force on the string side of the balance, so, as fatboy... says, open up the back of the guitar and slowly unscrew the screws where the strings are anchored to the guitar. do it a tiny bit at a time, and retune each time

i loosend the screws at the top of the fretboard and tightend the screws at the bridge and nothing happend at all

Not the screws at the bridge, open up the back plate of the guitar and screw the springs in tighter.

The same thing happened to me (I tried to put 0.10-0.46 strings on it when I had been using 0.09-0.44's). I think it'll work better if you tune it back down and then tighten the springs, then tune it back up to E.

Are you sure man? Did you tighten the screws at the back cavity?? If it still doesnt work, try adding another spring at the back. Increases the tension there and pulls the bridge back down.

ok thanks cheers i got it to normal height but its all out of tune, so how can i tune it back to standard without the bridge going really high again?

Take it into a shop, if you have no idea how the FR works and how to set it up then you will only make it worse.

Ask if you can watch how they set it up.
Flap it and enjoy yourself...

there's really no need to take it to a shop, it's just a matter of trial and error, tune it back up, loosen/tighten screws to level bridge, re-tune etc...
