Default Laptop Resolution

I have a Toshiba laptop that I have windows 95 on. Yes, I know, old. I just use notepad and solitaire on it. Anyway. Not too far back, I clicked the wrong button on my resolution and now all I see are lines going vertical that are on the screen in black and white. Can anyone help me fix this problem? I don't know how to do it and I'd like to be able to fix it. Post here or e-mail me at I need the comp. to do some school work.

Thank you so much!

press F8 whle the comptuer is booting to get into safe mode. Then, never touch the resolution setting again.

Maybe the display drives can be updated?

Check the manufacturers web site for more details.
