Monitor working- Out of Scan Range error-

First off, I'm brand new to Mandrake Linux (hence newbie!). The only way to learn is to dive in and try it out. I was attempting to change my video monitor resolution and apparently set it higher than the card can handle, when I logged off and logged back on i get the error "Monitor Working, Out Of Scan Range"... How do I fix this so it will boot back up again? I am running KDE

if you can kill X (ctrl+alt+bcksp) or usually(not sure with mandrake) if x can't start up it will ask you if you want it to disable it. Select yes and at a terminal edit your xconf as root. I think mandrake may use xfree.

Maybe some mandriva users may have better knowledge of configuring x though
