External Monitor Stuck in Unsupported Resolution

Hi, I got a new LCD tv today and wanted to use it as a monitor as well.
I've connected it up as my main monitor so when its connected via VGA my laptop goes blank and the screen is on the tv.

I was messing with the resolutions to try get the right one and now it says its in an unsupported resolution.
The problem is, I cant change it coz the screen wont show on the tv and its not showing on laptop because i set it not too.
When I unplug the connection I cant change the settings for the external so Im stuck at what to do.

Welcome!

Try unplugging the TV and rebooting. Hopefully things will revert.

Update your card drivers. Go to the manufacturer's site and choose your card.

What graphics card do you have? Try running Speccy if you do not know.

Try this link for drivers. I do not know what version of Windows 7 you have, so I cannot go any further.
