M70e - No video output after BIOS setting change

I was messing around with the bios settings this morning and changed my video settings from peg/pci to a different setting (igp) and now I have NO video output therefor I can't see the bios screen to change it back. 

 

For reference I am running a thinkcentre M70e desktop.

 

At first when I would reboot I would hear the sound like Windows was still loading in the background but now I don't even hear that so who knows what I've done. 

 

is there any way to do a reset while having a totally black screen?

 

i'm trying to avoid taking apart the computer if at all possible.

If it was set to peg/pci, that implies you have a (add-in) graphics card installed.   Is that correct?   Setting the BIOS to igp disables a graphics card, to use the built-in graphics.

 

Have you tried using the video ports that are built into the system?

Thanks for the response! I went ahead and just opened up the computer and took out the cmos and let the bios reset it self. All is good now!

And we're back...
