Default Gaming problem

Ever since I over clocked my video card, all my video games mess up.
When I turn on Halo, COD4, HalfLife2, Team Fortress, and everything else, the game works for a couple of seconds in the main menu, then my monitor becomes "Out of range," I might add when I turn on HL2 and TF the main menu looks very strange. Also, when I turn on ATI over clock program, the monitor goes "Out of range" as well. I have a nVidia, maybe I did something wrong during the over clock, is there anyway to set it back to default without actually opening the program.

I won't pretend to know anything about OC'ing a video card, but have you tried new video drivers?

You're using an ATI overclocking tool on your Nvidia card? What program is it exactly?

celegorm is on to something. You could uninstall the overclocking tool, then uninstall your current drivers. Then reinstall the drivers, returning your settings back to default.
