Changed monitor rez, now black screen?
So I changed the monitor rez to a higher rez in the mandrake control center, and when I logged back in my screen is black. The monitor just flashes "Signal out of Range". I can't see to cange it back. So, what do I do to get it back?
Try this ... get to a command prompt
hmm at the linux bootup screen hit i think it is tab or esc ...
the menu should disappear
and just give you a black and white screen..
type in linux -3 or linux 3 *can't remember which
If you get the right one... X wil not boot up and
You will get a login prompt
login as root
and the goto type the following command
That should give you a way to change your rez back.
After you exit that program
type init 6
and let it reboot and hope it works..
That did it!
Thanks for the help Gary.

One thing I noticed, at least for my CRT monitor, was that I had to enter the EXACT range (right down to the decimal places), or else my monitor would either go down to 75 Hz be default, or not even work. Just something to think about if something like that happens in the future.
