control alt f7 is not working

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?

Go into safe mode and go to display properties.  Is the resolution correct?  Other settings there?

The resolution is the default setting, 1024x768, but the graphics are disabled in safe mode so none of the other settings are available.

The restore fixed the problem though I would be happy to find out why control+alt+F7 did not fix my display. I am all ears...
