    I used an unofficial tool called Custom Resolution Utility to change my resolution to 400x240, something that's under Windows 10's minimum resolution. (Didn't know this at the time) I didn't remove any resolutions, just added that number to the application's list along with my 1366x768 main monitor, and restarted my PC to find it stuck in a BSOD loop.

    I don't remember the exact error, but all I know is that it had something along the lines of "unhandled exception" in a system file. Is there any way to remove that resolution from the list, like running the program again and fixing the file? And if so, how could I do this? Thanks.

    If more information is needed, I'll add it within 24 hours.

    Hi,
    are you still in a bsod loop? If so then you need either a recovery disk/USB or a copy of windows 10. Using either of these to boot from will get you into the recovery console and from there safe mode. Once in safe mode you'll be able to remove the resolution setting.
