I was trying to overclocking with the MSI AFTERBURNER program but I slid the GPU bar and the screen went black, I can not download it or restart it because it will not let me open the program, how can I fix it? nothing about this

IIRC there is an option "Apply clocks immedietly" which applies them as you slid then it stores them in the config. This is probably what happened and now the GPU driver crashes instantly because its not stable and it cant display the fancy effects of the program. You can probably reboot into safemode, uninstall msi after burner and reboot and it should be fine.

There's no reason to make two threads go back and read the The Forum guidelines

Restart the machine in safe mode for starters if I'm not mistaken you should be able to prevent afterburner from starting up using Services. MSC or Msconfig
