What OS are you using? I can't think of anything since Win 3.11 that'd run in mono or at lower than 640*400, and even then you could still see everything... Anyways, try booting in "Safe Mode" (press F3, F5, or F8 during startup -- it varies from version to version. :) -- this will start you in 640*480, 16 colours, from where you can make any changes you need. AFAIK no version of Windows has the facility to set different res/colourdepth on a user-to-user basis (which sucks!), so whatever changes you make here will be universally applied.

YMMV... :huh:

I think you HAVE to be logged in to change settings. Unless you mess with system.ini files. But I wouldn't even dare such a thing. :unsure:

I got a little batch utility where you make a shortcut with command lines that tell what res you want
