I came across weird and awefull problem with my display. I have a prefectly working stationary computer, one day i was adjusting my screen setup in windows control panel, i pressed 'detect' buttom in control panel->display->change display settings->detect, a buttom to the right. My screen went black and says 'no video signal' I tried on this screen or my other,same problem.black screen is even after starting a computer,I dont see anything even loading dos stuff.But it works,computer loads windows. It just blank and I have no idea how to return my screen setup, cuz I assume OS is messed.Help it's terrible.

In the past, it has been possible but extreamly/incredibly unlikey to blow out your monitor with a resolution your monitor can't handle. You say you don't even see DOS stuff which I assume you mean the POST screens before windows loads. Are you really saying you don't even see that anymore?

Turn on your computer, if you don't see the post screen, something went bad in your monitor. If you do see the POST screen, start tapping F8 after the POST screen and go into Safe Mode. Lower your resolution down to something like 600X800 and set your refresh rate to something low like 60Hz. Then reboot in normal mode and bump your resolution back up to something your comfortable with or the monitor's native resolution.

once you know that your machine has boot, try reving the monitor cables from the video card sockets, then reboot again, and replace the plugs.
if that fails, remove the video card and reboot, shut down and replace the video card in another slot if you have one. reboot
however the fact that your not seeing post is an issue, try another card if you have one, or from a freind.
try your vid card in another machine.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
