I was reloading Windows XP on my desk top (Dell Dimension 4600c)and there was only one resolution setting so I checked the box that said do not use default monitor now I can't see anything but a dark screen.
What can I do to get back to where I made the mistake.
Any Help would be greatly appreciated,Dave C
