iMac external display, can't find way to change preference

I hooked up an external projector display to an iMac.  Then I made a setting change that made the screen black.  How do I get rid of the setting?  Safe mode allows me to use the external display properly, but when I go back in as a user it goes back to the black screen.  Is there a file I can toss?  Also, I created a new user account and it goes black on that account as well so this is a system setting issue and not user specific.

Get switchres x and install it. Then use its more advanced setting controls to bring back your display. http://www.madrau.com/
