Reboot at the end of the end of the bios messages "F8". Should show you win boot options. Must be done at the correct time. End of boot messages prior to loading Win.

Read the above tutorial. This is what you want to try first.
The screen that comes up is run by the bios or DOS so screen should be visible as in tutorial. This should reset everything back to normal. A System Restore of sorts.


Last Know Good Configuration (advanced)

Starts Windows 7 with the most recent registry and driver configurations that worked successfully. Every time you turn your computer off and Windows 7 shuts down successfully, important system settings are saved in the registry. You can use those settings to start your computer if a problem occurs. For example, if a new driver for your video card is causing problems, or an incorrect registry setting is preventing Windows 7 from starting correctly, you can restart your computer using Last Known Good Configuration.

I have concerns about trying a safe mode booting because what if nothing still shows on the screen, how will I know where i am?

Just turn the PC off if that happens.

Do you see the boot screen (BIOS or MB splash screen) while starting the PC? Or do you start the PC and the monitor never locks on to a signal? If it never lights up, it will be dificult to get into safe mode. Tapping F8 right after starting the PC until you see the Safe Mode loading might work, but on my PC, hitting F8 while the BIOS screen loads gives me a BIOS option. Do you have a Windows 7 Repair disk? Or the Windows 7 install disk?

yeah, the screen never sees the signal from the computer and thus the screen never lights up at all. I'm not sure if i ahve a repair disk. How about my trying to use a different monitor? If I do, what should i expect...that is how do I go about hooking and starting another monitor?

Success: Monitor working and deleted MagicTunePremium

First let me tell you that there was a little more to this story of woe.

At the same time I was fooling aournd trying to clean up anddelete the program, my monitor went blank. I think it happened when I went into sleep mode. Nothing I could do would wake up the monitor. So, naturally, I thought that there was a relationship to my fumbling and the monitor going blank. Called out for help on several forums (Messed up monitor, won't showbooted computer - help and Screwed up monitor, won't show booted computer stuff and Monitor not responding to booted computer? - NVIDIA Forums)

A lot of boot in safe mode suggestions; but i was afraid to do this as I thought if the monitor didn't respond, then I wouldn't know where it was when I shut it off...so I didn't do this. However, what I did do was to check out the monitor (had two inputs: DVI and VGA) and its cable with my laptop. Connected VGA to VGA, monitor to laptop, monitor worked fine. Connected DVI to HDMI (the connection that wasn't working), monitor didn't wake up...ah, the cable.

With the monitor now working, I was able to dl LockHunter and it found and deleted MagicTunePremium. I also found the original driver/magictune/natural color disk that came with the monitor. It is about 5-6 years old and I'm wondering if I should try to now dl the right disk (for the 193p monitor, not the 173p as I had done).

EDIT: Screen unresponsiveness may not have been due to the cable, as first thought. Bought a similar cable ($54 ripoff) from RS (will return of course) and tested on the monitor (DVI monitor to HDMI computer)...didn't work. Thus, the monitor's DVI input must have fried. Also, dl'd Magictune (premium for Vista 64 and Windows 7 64...everything is now working fine.
