Will System Restore work on display settings?

A friend who lives a considerable distance away has a problem with his monitor. After a series of problems, the display settings have changed to a resolution and/or frequency that the monitor doesn't support.

He's not at all computer-savvy (even less than me!) so I'm reluctant to suggest that he starts dabbling in the display settings. If I suggest that he uses System Restore to roll back to a time before the problem, will that restore his previous display settings?

Any advice gratefully received.

Incidentally, he uses Vista Home Premium.

It should do, so long as the pc is taken back to before any changes were made to the display settings.

Presumably it doesn't matter how far before the problem arose, just so long as it *is* before?

Te day before would be sufficient but if he can't remember the exact date then take it back as far as he can.

OK, many thanks again Jak_1.
