Made Settings Change and Now Can't See - Please Help

OS: WIndows 10

Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 R5450-MD1GD3H/LP 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card

Computer Savviness: VERY little, just better than my parents and enough so people mistake that I know what I'm doing.

I was fiddling around with the aspects for the video card. The 1.13 update of Minecraft is coming up soon and I can't get it to work. Since I got the card for the LAST major update, I wanted to go ahead and eliminate my card as the issue. I've been really bad at keeping the drivers up-to-date because it doesn't seem like anything is being done, it takes a long time to do that nothing, and I can't do anything until that nothing is being done


That being said, I went into the software to manually check for updates, since it hasn't reminded me to do so in quite some time. I was checking all of the tabs for the right page and I saw something like "GPU Scaling" . When I hit the button, my screen went blank. I thought that it'd do like standard graphics settings and go back after to the previous setting if I didn't confirm it, but nothing happened after a full minute. I reset my computer, hoping that those previous settings would be there, but I got the computer's loading screen, Windows 10's loading screen…and then, nothing. I can hear the sound of Windows loading, but nothing on the screen. Since I can't see anything, I can't DO anything.


So far I've removed the card (as per the advice of a user on another board) and uninstalled the drivers.  HOWEVER, when I re-inserted the card, the screen is still blank.
