Hey, everyone!

In my linux desktop I changed screen resolution... from 800x600 to 1024x768.
I think my grafics card could not handle that because when I startup Linux now,
my monitor gives high beeps... and I don't get something on my monitor. HOW CAN I CHANGE MODE BACK TO 800x600?

What distro you using?

I mean if it's just X for example that you've set the res too high you can either re-run the config file on command line or edit the config files.

Do you have an option to goto a command line instead of instantly loading up your GUI? Or can you exit your GUI and get to a command line that way?

What happen when you type crtl-alt-backspace? Does it kick you out and give you
a commman line console. When you boot up you machine, does it give you a grapical lilo (if the display was o.k.) or something similar. If it does but now is blank because of the display problem. Then type ESC when it goes blank. If successful, you get a prompt, type
linux 3. If successful, you get a console login. I don't know how to change resolution using command line though.
