x config gone bad


Alright, I have been running Slackware 9.1 for a few months now and when I originaly installed it I never had to mess with any of my monitor settings, I just told I wanted 1024x786 and that was that, never had to run xf86config or anything which is all just as well cause I lost the information on my monitor years ago. Now earlier today I needed a different resolution to test something and changing to it went fine by just going to the KDE configure stuff and making it 800x600 but when I went to change it back it all went down hill. Upon changing the settings back to 1024x786 the screens hsync was off so lines were running on to the next line so to speak and I quickly got out of it and after browsing the forums decided to run xf86config to fix the problem but it just made it worse. Now I'm receiving the "infamous no screens error" as I read in another post. Is there a way to re-running the setup to get me back to how I was in the begining when I first installed without having to reinstall or do I have to keep hacking away at xf86config till it works? Thanks in advance for any tips/suggestions.
