Boot up in Safe mode and do a System Restore back to a date before you "ACCIDENTLY changed the display seettings to something un-supported".

I'm thinking out loud here, so I'm not sure if this will work, but it's worth a try. What about hitting F8 during boot and choosing "Enable VGA Mode". I would think that since the driver would be reverted to something generic, it would change to a normal 640 x 480 resolution. Once in, you might be able to find a way to change the adapter settings of the installed card. If not, you night be able to uninstall the drivers and then reinstall the card once you are able to get back into normal mode.

Like I said, I'm not even sure if it would work, but it's just an idea. :D

Sorry, I just noticed that you have Vista. It's labeled differently than it is in Windows XP. I'm assuming that you tried the one that says "Enable low-resolution video (640 x 480)"?

Worth a shot:

In Safe mode, uninstall your Display Adapter(s) in Device Manager and then reboot, (in normal mode).

Windows should automatically run through it's "Found new hardware" routine and reinstall/resetup your adapter(s).
