Display settings.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5160 that belongs to one of my wifes coworkers and some how the resolution has been changed to the point that you can not "see" most of ANY menu. How can I change the resolution, uninstall the video driver, you name it If I cannot see the full menu?

Here's some pics.

while fully booted into windows...hold down the power button for like 5 seconds and kill it. Wait about 10 seconds and hit the power button again, windows should not like that and ask if you want to boot from a floppy, or boot into safe mode. Pick safe mode, when booted back up into safe mode, it should be better....then go to properties and change the res. to like 800x600 or something viewable.

If that doesn't work, go Office Space on it in slow mo with bad ass music playing in the background.

I don't know how, but I accidentally fixed it.

Never do that. There is a 50% chance of corrupting windows!

Always hit F8 before the windows screen to get into safe mode.
