Resolution Input not supported at start up

Hi guys, today i decided to download Garry's Mod again to my steam. As i went to start the game it came up with a blank screen with the message input unsupported. So being me i started to fiddle with my initial desktop screen resolution and i put it up higher than what it was to see if i could make the game work by making these changes.

However on changing the resolution the screen went blank and brought the same message up again as it did in Garry's Mod. The only way i can use my computer now is in Safe Mode, believing that this would give me a lower default resolution where I could change the setting back, but after going through the safe mode file load, windows seemed to re-boot normally and I was back to the same problem - working computer, no display. I cant think of any way to change the resolution back to what it was :( i've been trying now for almost 2 hours and am starting to get slightly annoyed with my unsolved luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated as its a rainy day and im eager to get back on my games or die of boredom xD

Do you save the resolution setting in Safe Mode after you lower it to a level acceptable to your monitor ? If you don't, it reverts to the previous setting after reboot. Or are we talking about game resolution setting ?

There's rarely any reason to change the desktop resolution. It should be set to the native resolution for your monitor then left alone. Other than that, we know nothing about your system - no specs were given, no make/model of monitor. For all we know, you don't even have a gaming system.

To fix your mess, all you have to do is press the F8 key at bootup & select "Enable low-resolution video (640x480)". Then when you get into Windows, change the setting to the native resolution for your monitor. If you don't know what that is, google the model number or go to the monitor manufacturer's website & look up the specs.
