Default PLease help, Urgent!

Hey, I was playing a game, when my pc suddenly rebooted. When it had restarted, the resolution was fu(ked up. I can't change this in windows, and I dunno how to start the VGA-mode from bios. I have tried all the F-buttons.

I'm running Windoze XP oon a 3 GHz pentium 4, 768mb ram.

How do I change it back to normal?

When your booting up, push F8 and boot into last known good configuration. That should fix the problem.

I got It working again, no thx to you. The hardware driver had been damaged and the graphics card had used the alternative hardware instead. I reinstalled the driver and it worked.

Its great that thebleakness helped me, but by "you" I meant other ppl who were online at the moment. It wasn't to be ungrateful, but I were just a bit angry at the time.
