Problem description: I, an idiot, was all excited about my shiny new computer and was going through the Windows settings. I saw an option for HDR, and since I have a nice new GPU, clicked it. My screen immediately went black and now will show nothing, so I can't get anywhere to undo my foolishness.

Attempted fixes: I've restarted and tried different HDMI cables and HDMI ports from both my mobo and my GPU. I did some Googling, but haven't had much luck.

Recent changes: Other than clicking 'Use HDR,' nothing.

Try booting into safe mode and disabling HDR.
