Disabling the VGA in the BIOS generally does not disable the boot screen. Just go back into the BIOS & re-enable it again. However, if you have no display at all & you're asking about a desktop machine, you can try resetting the BIOS by using the Clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard.

Disabling the VGA in the BIOS can give you a blank screen if the computer has an integrated Video chip and there is no PCI/AVG video card fitted.

However, resetting the CMOS jumpier with rectify any mistakes and put the machine back into a usable state.

You need to read the manual for the computer to do that, if only to find the location of the jumper.

Basically you turn the computer off, remove the power cored, open the case and locate the CMOS reset jumper. This is often near the CMOS battery. Take the jumper of the pins it is on and replace it on the empty pin and the middle pin. Wait a couple of seconds and put the jumper back where it came from.

Replace the case, apply power and re-boot.
