Windows 7: Changed Screen Resolution Setting and now I get VGA No Signal

Changed Screen Resolution Setting and now I get VGA No Signal

So I'm currently fixing my graphics card drivers and I'm having some issues with my taskbar and desktop icons not showing up after installing it. But I remember this happening last re-install and what I did to fix it was to go into Screen Resolution and change something there. I dont remember too specifically but I tried changing to another setting in some tab (dont remember the name) and my screen went black with a message saying "VGA No Signal" and the power button went red/orange. Safe Mode works fine and if I remove the graphics card drivers, I can boot normally. But whenever I install them again, it just happens again.

Try using another Monitor, maybe it cannot support the highest resolution your GPU can give.
