Default CSS, urgent help please.

Hey guys,

My uncle just started playing CSS, i went around to his house to sort out the game and change settings etc. When i went into options to changed his monitor settings from 800 X 600 to a higher setting, it adjusted but then came up with 'signal output out of range'. Basically i think that the monitor cant handle the higher resolution, but we've uninstalled and installed but it hasnt helped. I dont know how to change the settings back to 800 X 600. I would really really really appreciate help. Thanks.

Just boot into safe mode by pressing F8 repeatedly at startup, till you get a menu up, then select safe mode and change it in there(it will look strange but thats normal) then reboot the pc and it should be fine

Ah right ive got ya now, its the game resolution ya need changed and not the OS resolution. IM not totally sure about that, as i never use my pc for gaming, im guessing there will be a settings file somewhere, and ya should be to edit that.

Okay, well I'd try to see is the Steam won't have the settings in the game before you change it back. Like, open Steam, try to gain CS:S settings from there.
