Changing resolution at setup and test option


During setup I changed resolution from 1024 to slightly higher one. When I clicked Test, my setup stuff went away and was replaced by blue background and x cursor. I tryied pushing esc, enter, space, etc. but still can't return to setup. How can I do it?
Also if I just restart my computer will I need to redo everything, or will it bring me to correct place in setup. I already setup all the partitions and installed all the packages. And was on configure part of the setup. I was installing in Text mode.
Thx.

Apparently the setting you were testing with didn't work. Normally, all you have to do is wait 10 or 15 seconds and then it'll return back to the old setting unless you choose to apply the new one.

Yeah, it didn't return, and got stuck on the screen. What can I do? Don't really want to redo the whole setup from the beginning.

Try booting it up, then run "drakconf" from the console and select "display" to configure it.

I ran Mandrakelinux Control Center, but it keeps freezing on me. I mean I can open other programs and stuff, but I can't move my mouse, and can't change from current window in the control center. When I try to shut down computer it just hangs there at black screen. Should I just delete all partitions and try again? Also I have USB Explorer 3.0 optical mouse. Can that cause these problems?
Thx.

Did you get a chance to configure the mouse before your display went South? ...if not, you should do so - just switch to the console by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 and run "drakconf" then select "mouse". I can't tell you if there are any compatibility issues with the mouse you have and MDK10.
