ISSUE: I was getting an Out of Range error on a Sony Vaio with an Sony LCD monitor. If I plugged in a different monitor to the Vaio, no error. Then, I accidentally changed the resolution in XP and now I cannot get the workstation to come up on either monitor. The LCD gives the same Out of Range error and the other monitor is all fuzzy and I cannot see the desktop to change the resolution.

QUESTION: Does anyone know of a way to reset the current resolution settings to the defaul settings without wiping the computer clean? Maybe through a command prompt??

Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

fr the out of resolution issue on a XP machine, there are some steps that can be followed :-
> restart the machine
> when the system shows the first startup screen,keep tapping F8
> select the option " Start windows in last known good configuration "
> if that does not work, then again tap F8 on comp startup and select " Enable VGA Mode "
> when the desktop shows up, go to the display properties
> select " Settings " tab and change the resolution to 640X480
> then once u do that, restart the machine and let it start up normally and check
This would resolve the issue...
