Ok I was trying to raise the resolution on my computer and in an attempt to make it better i disabled the adapter chip. Now my computer won't show anything on my desktop. My safe mode isn't working so what do I do to enable it?

Hi lildon012 and welcome to TSF !

What's the brand and model of your computer ?

What exactly did you do ? You right-clicked the display adapter in the device manager and clicked disable ?

Repeatedly press F8 while the computer starts. Can you access this advanced options menu ? Select "last known good configuration" and tell us how it goes. If last known good configuration doesn't work then select safe mode and reenable your video adapter.

If the motherboard has onboard video you may need to plug the monitor to the other vga port at the back of the computer. You may also need to enter the BIOS to select the onboard video output.

If you've already started a thread on another support forum it's always better to tell us about it so that we can see what's already been tried :

reset the cmos
turn the computer off
remove the power lead from the back
take the side off
remove the cmos battery
move the cmos jumper from pins 1 and 2 to pin 2 and 3 and the back to pins 1 and 2
replace the battery
put the side on
replug in the power lead
boot the computer

there can be 2 solder points you touch with a screwdriver
2 pins you touch with a screwdriver or use a jumper
a cmos clear switch or button
there will be a diagram and instructions in your manual

What is a BIOS and nothing is working so far if I go to safe mode it won't open up and all I can see is multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\system32\usually drivers but it changes how do I fix this without having to open up my computer if possible.
