    Foolishly set the display adapter in display-properties-settings to
    1600x1280 pixels and the screen went blank with a blue bar through the
    middle third of the screen and now can't do anything with it! Any ideas
    anyone?

    Boot into Safe Mode and set the display to one that
    your monitor can read. Adjust as necessary (refresh
    rate etc.) when back in normal mode.
