After changing Video settings or drives your screen can adjust beyond the limits of your monitor. To get back to a setting you can see follow the steps below and adjust the settings appropriately.

Hit F8 as soon as the Starting Windows splash screen appears to get the boot options menu. If the menu does not appear power down the PC and try again, F8 needs to be pressed as soon as the splash screen appears.

From the boot options menu select VGA mode.

If the Video setting were the problem Windows should boot but the resolution and color depth should be lower.

Once Windows boots you have a few options depending on what caused the problem.

If The resolution was set too high you can adjust the resolution to a lower setting and reboot to test the new settings.

If Video Drivers caused the problem you can do the following:

Once the window comes up click Device manager

Click the + to open up the Display Adapters and then

Right click on your graphics chip set and click properties

Once the properties window comes up, click the Drivers tab

And click Roll Back Driver and then click Yes

Another option would be download different or updated Drivers
