Default Monitor/Res Problem

I tried changing the resolution on my other computer, and somehow completely messed up the display. The monitor works fine with the other computer, but does not pick up a signal from the good one. It's running Windows ME, with Ubuntu 6.06 set up also.

Because I can't see the screen, I am unable to change the resolution back to a visible one. Is there any way to do this without looking or though Linux?

Also, I used a little screen res change option on a menu bar that appears when you right-click on the desktop, so there is no " would you like to change back" dialouge box.

Any quick help would be greatly appreciated!

Hold F8 when you turn the computer on. It should boot you up in safe mode.
