Solved laptop monitor turns black when i plug vga output in

Specs: Windows Vista
I was trying to get my screen to display onto my big lcd tv. I right clicked and chose output to>>>>monitor

problem is whenever i plug the vga plug into my laptop the screen goes blank and the tv isnt recieving any signal so I cant even troubleshoot anything any more since i cant click anything while it is plugged in. I got a response on the tv finally but it was black.. which is exactly what my laptop screen is displaying.

I would just switch the display "output to" setting back to normal the problem is I cant access that option unless it is plugged in. And when I plug it in the screen is black. Im stuck

Thank you. That would have prob done the trick but I was luckily able to switch the setting back blindly.
