Default Cannot get a display, cannot fix display issue with no display

I recently changed my settings of my GPU to 85hertz. My monitor only supports 60. The display quickly went down, and now I have no display to go back into the menu and change it back. any ideas?

Do you happen to have another video card that you know works? If so, try switching them.

Try and plug in a CRT if you have one and change it back. Or anything that can support 85Hz

If you boot into safe mode can you make changes or will that not work when you boot up normally?

That should work, and if it doesn't, you still have the option to uninstall the display driver which WILL change it back, but you'd have to install the driver again.

CRT - Old fat monitor.

How did you reset the settings? In the BIOS or the OS?

Alright which OS?

For Vista try a Restore Point.

On this page step 2 shows the link you can click to get a Restore Point.

For XP first see if you have a Restore Point if not you can do a Repair install.

Sorry, But there is no display AT ALL. just a blank screen. Therefore I cannot do a restore point, I cannot see to access anything. Maybe my AGP burned out? Unable to test videocard on another computer due to the thickness. I have no other compatible computer able to use it. No integrated either.
