What does it mean when you say you 'started windows and tried to change resolution'... were you at the desktop while doing that?
The configuration file is '/etc/X11/xorg.conf. Changes to this file would make a difference to the display.
I think when booting up the pc at the grub you have safe mode. Try that.

Try running sudo 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg' this will give you a chance to run the screen configuration manually.
