So the thing is, I WAS playing BeamNG.Drive and put it on Fullscreen. After I had done this, the display went black and blue then displayed "Invalid Format." So I restarted the computer and when it turned on, it was alright at the lock screen. But after the lockscreen there was the normal Windows 10 home screen but had black, borders on each side. The screen was smaller. So my Dad said try every single one of the resolution settings in the settings, and I did, but when I got to somewhere like 2000x??? pixels, black then blue "Invalid Format" once again! My Dad tried everything and ended up resetting the computer. Data was erased, but it was stil doing the same thing....

My screen is an LG TV Monitor. If you need more details just say it here.

My dad actually used an old GPU to launch the computer. He changed the resolution to fit just right and uninstalled drivers for the newer GPU(GPU used when it had "Invalid Format"s) and installed newer ones. He resetted the computer with the newer GPU but it still had that screen. No matter what you try to do (atleast what we've done) doesnt really solve the problem. Is there a way or ways to fix this without having to reformat the hard drive? Make it detaild aswell so that I can show my Dad.
