Wink Did something really stupid..Please help !!!

Hi guys let me 1st thank you for taking the time to help an offer advice

So as the title says i did something stupid, I had just purchased an s-vid cable to try and get my second computer on my oldish sony telly, wasnt happy with the results ( picture an text appered blurry)

Changing perameters such as resolution and color. But to no avail. And in a desperate moment of not thinking i selected 170hz From the display window options,

OOPpps, now when i realized what i had done ( within a micro sec) off pops my old big bulcky monitor im using. Now 1st Thinking that whole "windows will revert back within x amount of seconds is gonna happen.......

But it dont ...!!!!! I have tried to think desperately what to do.

I tried in vain today to connect to my second computer( thought i might be able to selct options on the other this way..????????????

Never having done this myself, I assumed that it was a simple case of using the blue ethernet cable that you get as standard with ur provider. into the other comp and then bobs ur uncle. I couldnt connect it anywho....!

My brother was saying about going into safe mode, but how without seeing the menu. PLEASE HELP THIS HOPELESS BAFOON

If you get a display signal at boot, press F8 to get into safe mode. From there you should be able to reset your video to a more acceptable level.
