I am not sure if it is the right board to ask this question.  I changed the moniter display settings from 1024X768 pixels to 1280X1024 pixels.  After I changed it, the moniter turned into black color and I can not see anything on it.  I can not change the settings back since I can not see anything.  But the system still runs well.  I also can use DOS.  Does any expert can tell me how to change the settings back?  Thanks a lot

If you are using Win95/98/NT/2000, hit F8 repeatedly when you are booting up until a startup menu is displayed.  One of the options should be "start Windows in safe mode."  Move down the menu with the down arrow and click enter when this option is highlighted.  You should boot up into Windows at 640 x 480 resolution and 16 colors.  Right-click on the desktop (away from any icons) and select properties.  Then, go to the settings tab in the screen that pops up and choose the resolution and color depth that you want.  When you reboot, just allow it to load up normally at the selected resolution.
