I pressed control+alt+f1 and my screen went blank.

Now my display will not come back unless I am in safe mode.

Everywhere I check, control+alt+f7 is supposed to return my screen display to normal, but that is not working.

I have checked the device manager. Neither of my display adapters have been disabled. There are no obvious errors. I have Intel HD Graphics Family and NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M, if that helps. I am using win7 professional.

Any ideas on how I can get my display back?
