I frustratingly decided to run to the store and buy speakers. However,on a whim I decided to try one more thing to see if HDMI would work.

I went to resolution in the control panel. There were two monitors shown. One that said E24,an another that said VGA. I clicked on something that said extend this display to just the E24 monitor. I then restarted. The HDMI finally worked. Sound and all.

Then I messed everything up.

I noticed that whatever I did might have made the HDMI output finally work but some of the icons were cut off the screen so I right clicked on just a random part of the screen that listed a bunch of things about the resolution. I clicked Display and the entire TV went black.

I kept hopping between HMDI and VGA trying to get the miracle HDMI signal back when all of sudden the VGA went out to. Now it just shows a black screen with a red line going down the right side of it.

However, the VGA(not HDMI though)works in SAFE MODE,but only that. If I try to go back into regular mode it won't work.

What have I done and how do I fix it? I just want the VGA back at this point. God I literally just brought this TV and all of this is happening.

Also if it matters that one time I got the HDMI to work the VGA output was hooked up as well.

Also wondering if a system restore would work?
These are the resolutions that your Sceptre tv accepts:

HDMI Input Support 1080/24p, 1080/60p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i

VGA Input Support PC Input Max Resolution : 1920 x 1080@ 60hz
Native Resolution : 1920 x 1080

Besides plugging in either VGA or an HDMI cable, you probably ALSO have to set your pc's video resolution to one of those settings.

So, if using a VGA cable, try setting your Windows video resolution to 1920 x 1080 60Hz. Same with HDMI, try 1080/60p or 1080i

Try leaving the HDMI cable unplugged from the computer.
