Windows 7: (Help) Disabled the monitor

(Help) Disabled the monitor

So i made the most stupid mistake ever. I'm a Nvidia user. I wanted to play Sonic Generations at full speed and it didn't notice my Nvidia card. I found how to fix it. I clicked Screen Resolution and made another screen that uses Nvidia. The game worked faster but because of my silliness, I selected the Nvidia screen as the main screen and now it's all black. I tried safe mode but even if I tap F8 it still doesn't work -it may be because i can't see anything so i tap it at the wrong time but i don't know-

Can somebody help me? And sorry for my bad English. :/

I have an creative x-fi installed which I have disabled. The on board realtek (mb is an asus ph67) shows audio input to speakers in control panel but no sound at jacks (front or rear). Does the presence of the Creative SC disable the onboard audio?
