NT4 and screen resolution

Help! On my NT Machine I foolishly set my screen resolution too high and the screen has now gone blank. How can I change the resolution back if I cannot see the screen ? Is there a 'Safe Mode' in NT4 as there is in 95/98
Please Help

jbunting the last known good used might not work as that resolution might have been in the config. If he uses the VGA mode he'll be able to change the resolution back to a stable resolution.
