I have a Dell windows 2000 comuter, and i set the screen setting to a setting to powerfull for my screen, and every time I want to turn on my computer, the screen says it's not compatable with my screen settings.
Is there any way to reset the screen settings to factory settings while being unable to see what I'm doing?

Try going into safe mode and doing it from there but you could also go to control panel>display>settings>advanced>monitor and tick 'hide modes that this monitor cannot display'

Start>settings>control panel or click on an empty part of the desktop, press F1 and type control panel in the search box

I cant even get to the "enter password screen"(by the way, I'm using a different computer to do this)!!

Have you tried repeatedly pressing f8 as it boots to get you into safe mode

Find a spare monitor or borrow one from a desk top
plug it in to the monitor port at back of the lappy then go from there ,as above.
