Windows 7: My TV has an HDMI cable plugged in, and it says it says VGA.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
My TV has an HDMI cable plugged in, and it says it says VGA.

I think I lost the driver for my TV when I was messing with the resolution. It said there was something plugged into the VGA, there was nothing in my VGA slot neither on my computer nor my TV. I restarted my computer, and now none of my video games will open. When I try to open RIFT, it says "Insufficient video card" and I can't play any other high quality graphic games. Before I messed with the resolution and the VGA thing, it worked perfectly fine. I'd like to know if I could get the driver back for my TV. Thanks for any help I get.

I just decided to factory reset my computer, then I realized that I'm stupid. I have a disc for all my drivers, and I didnt even THINK of trying to use that. I'm so stupid. Thanks for trying to help anyway.
