Default Display messed up

I had to shut down my computer the other day by just turning off the power because it was frozen, and when I restarted it, it asked if i wanted to start windows normally, start in safe mode, or load most recent working settings. I accidently selected previous working setting, slip of the hand (I already hit myself in the head for that), and now it won't let me change from 800x600 resolution and 4 bit colors. There just aren't anymore settings. Except when I go into advanced-adapter-list all modes, i can select 600x400 and 16 bit color but its not any better. as far as I can tell there is nothing changed in the BIOS.

2.4 ghz matsonic
512 sdram
128mb geforce fx 5600

Send a message via Yahoo to intercodes

You dont have the display drivers installed. Put in your motherboard CD or the Graphics card driver cd into the drive and try installing the display drivers.
