Hi everyone,

I have Leopard installed on my Dimension 4600 with an ATI Radeon 9550. I installed the drivers (Callisto 003) and restarted and went into System Preferences -> Display. Prior to installing the drivers I only had one option and so I now saw an entire list of options.

I clicked on one and the monitor went black with a message "cannot display this video mode"

So is there any way to reset my monitor setting back to 1024x768? I have tried typing in the following on boot but it did not work (maybe im doing it wrong)

[codebox]"Graphics Mode" = "1024x768x32"[/codebox]

Thanks in advance I appreciate any help

I think you should start up with -x which makes your OS to boot in safe mode. There won't be qe/ci but probably it let's u to change resolution.
if won't then hope that someone smarter will find this topic :(
