    Press and release F8 continually as soon as you power up the PC, this will get you to a menu, select 'Enable VGA mode' and press Enter.

    Once at the desktop change the Display settings back to ones that worked before then reboot normally and you should be ok.

    It would be wise to take the monitor into a decent repair shop and get it restored. It's possible you changed your video card to a setting that your display did not like and damaged it.

    try managed suggestion to see if you can bypass the driver and restore the monitor. If so you're in good shape.
