Black screen ...

Hello,
The person who serviced my PC altered the graphical mode in such way
that I am unable to run it with my monitor, Windows produces the
invitation panel (and I suppose it runs correctly thereafter) but the
screen turns black subsequently. Everything is fine except that I
cannot see anything. :-)

Is there some clever way of changing the video mode under these
circumstances?

Thank you very much.
Tom

P.S. The power is on. ;-)

When starting the pc, press the same button you would to get into safe mode,
F5/F8???
Then you should have an option to start in vga mode, use this and hopefully
you'll be able to compute once again.

Great! Thank you.

It's more fun to compute.
