Default Resolution help!!

Hello im new and i need some help. I set my resolution really high on my other computer and it asked me to restart my computer before it takes effect. So i did. But after all those loading screens, right before its suppose to show the blue welcome screen(using winXP) it goes black and a blue screen pops up saying something about i have to lower my screen resolution. But thats impossible since i cant see whats on my screen except this blue box and black screen. Does anyone know how to change the resolution any other way>

Start in safe mode by tapping F8 on your keyboard as the computer starts. Select "Enable VGA mode" and change your settings from there.

If it did, we wouldn't have this problem in the first place.

Been there, done that. Change it to something usable in safe mode like 800x600, then reboot as normal and fix it to something your particular monitor supports and looks good to you.
