Press the ok button of your monitor,
it would display a window, use the two other buttons on the monitor(excluding the power button) and move to "adjust color" and press the ok button and try changing the color selected.

It's a simple fix. Reboot your computer and press the F8 key repeatedly until you come to a boot menu. Select Safe Mode. This will take you into Windows at a default of 640x480 resolution. Adjust the settings according to the monitor and lower them to what you had them before you did the changes.

Another method is when you are at the boot menu selection, you can select safe mode with command prompt.

Type c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe for windows xp to use the system restore and rollback windows to when it was working properly.

Cannot get screen resolution 1280x 1024 pixels

Make sure your screen refresh rate isn't set higher than 75Hz. It's in Display Settings or Screen Resolution depending on what version of Windows you use. You may have to go into advanced settings and look in the Monitor section to find it.
There should also be a way to reset the monitor using its built-in controls just in case something got messed up.

Hp laptop black screen but running in background

I have to know if you changed the display resolution settings. If so, boot the laptop to safe mode (tap the F8 key after you turn it on). Go to Start > Control Panel > Display and select the settings tab. Try changing the resolution to 1024 x 768 and see if that will bring everything back to good order.

Good luck, and feel free to rate this advice.
