    With the Nvidia Forceware, I accidently changed the screen refresh rate of my desktop to 75. As soon as I did it, my LCD monitor just went black, and said "No Signal". I can see that the computer is still working, because I managed to get it to restart by guesswork and the help of the windows key, but theres no input going to the monitor!
    I'm running Windows XP Media Centre

    Please help!

    Boot to Safe Mode or Enable VGA mode and see if that will let you set the refresh rate back to what your LCD will handle.

    Tap F8 during startup to get the Startup options menu
