My neighbor asked me to help him with his computer because he was fooling around with his display settings and messed his monitor up. He currently has his monitor connected to his TV where he can view both if he wants, but apparently the cable guy messed something up so he hasn't been able to view his monitor on his TV, so he was trying to fix it using the display settings tab. He says he clicked on something the first time around and his desktop was huge. The background was normal size but the icons were no where to be seen, and if he opened up something it opened somewhere else on the desktop where it couldn't be seen. Then, to try to fix that he went back into display settings and clicked on something like the extend to desktop, and either selected or deselected it then the monitor went black. Now, after rebooting several times, the initial Windows screen loads up and is visible but after that the monitor is dark. I tried to go into safe mode and access the display settings there, but didn't have the advanced options for dual monitors, it only showed the single monitor. Nothing I played with seems to have helped and the monitor is still black. Any suggestions?
