One day i was using my monitor when i went to go change a setting that i reverted one day, yet when i changed the setting, my monitor went black and my power button blinked. Nothing seemed to fix the problem and im convinced that my monitor's fried. Before i get rid of my favorite monitor, please tell me if there is ANY way to fix this problem! Any help would be greatly appriciated.

First connect you're monitor on to another system if possible. This will only make sure you're monitor is still working ok.
You're system needs to be shut down. (Keep you're monitor connected to you're system).
Than start it up and press the F5 key on you're keyboard every 2 seconds. This will bring up a screen that looks just like the one below;
Choose Safe mode from the list. Once you are in windows safe mode open windows control panel than open the display icon. Change the settings to where they were before you made changes. Chances are you need to lower the refresh rate and the resolution. Than save and exit the display properties. Close control panel. Cross you're finger and re-start you're system. If this doesn't work you'll have no choice but to hook up a much better monitor to you're system so you can change the display settings.
800 x 600 is bios settings its not receiving the signal to change, check the screen size settings in control panel, this can also be a cable problem as the signal is sent to the monitor to change settings.
You will need to change the display settings for the type of lcd monitor you have, it is a wide screen I am assuming, you can change this by right clicking on the desktop select properties then settings the screen resolution should be on the middle left side and change this until you get a screen that you like There is also an advanced setting then select monitor at the top tab and change to refresh rate to the lowest setting (60 hz) this should get the HCL monitor up then change the setting until they dont work the operating system will revert to the previous settings if you cant see anything after a change. you may also need to use the automated setup on the lcd monitor select auto from the menu (osd). Now if you can not do this on the HCL lcd you may need to use that other Samsung monitor and then set up on that at the lowest resolution so that the lcd can be changed with a working screen. Lastly you may need to uninstall the samsung monitor drivers if you installed those, and leave the generic drivers in for the monitor (plug and play monitor). I am making some guesses here as you did not tell me if the 1st Samsung monitor was a lcd also , and if the second HCL monitor is a wide screen etc what type of operating system are you running is also important 98 is fussy and 2000 is much more simplified as is XP , vista would be garbage (if you could get it to run on a pIII), As for reasons for resolution problems, way too many variables to discuss in a short answer forum like this, sufficed to say that the resolution is different because in the past there were lower resolution (less pixels) on monitors, the refresh rates were different by manufacturers and the way the lines were scanned could be different, so setup of the monitor with the video card was also very important interlacing etc was also handled differently until that industry decided on a common standard. I hope this helps you to get the monitor up and running.
This usually happens when the resolution is set incorrectly for the monitor. If you have been using the same setup, probably an update changed the driver or setting for the video card. If it is a new monitor, try hooking up the old one and change the resolution to something the new monitor can understand. If you have been using it for some time and this is all of a sudden, then try to borrow a monitor and change the resolution to something the monitor can understand. If you borrow one and can get it working, also look and make sure the video card has a driver installed. Sometimes an update can change things.
Hope this solves your problem same I met before. There are a lot of queries it may involve here to streamline the problem. Well, first try to reset the monitor setting manually in OSD mode, then select different frequencies there and try each. To much with your PC video card frequency try changing the video adapter frequency properties on PC GUID or operating system video card panel. Try lower frequency first..
If the problem persist, like you've said it changes back to default setting when pressing the monitor setting buttons, there must be some problem in the circuit board of the monitor it cannot hold the frequency settings due to cold solder on control processor section and buttons. Other major defect is the CMOS chip to hold the settings and or bad caps.
