black screen - maxed out virtual memory

HP Envy Phoenix h9
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

A game kept crashing-  I opened advanced system settings and manually changed the virtual memory. I set it very high - and now my screen is black.

Any tips on how to reboot my pc to get my screen working?

Hi
First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.

Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).
AND/OR
HOW DO I USE DIAGNOSTICS?
