Blank screen on laptop after settings change

  [DELETED] 17:03 05 Jun 2006

Laptop Toshiba Satellite 210CT running Win95. I changed the resolution from whatever it was to the next (only) higher, the settings were ‘change without restarting’ and the screen went blank. I have rebooted and get the win95 light blue logo as per normal startup and then the screen goes blank you hear the windows startup sound and nothing else. I am not sure about this next bit, but somewhere in the long and distant past when I used to work with MS DOS I seem to have a vague recollection of being able to change video resolutions in dos for win95 (or it may have been 3.11). Any help would be really gratefully appreciated.

By pressing F5 at the "Starting Windows 95" message.

By pressing F8 at the "Starting Windows 95" message, and then choosing Safe Mode from the Windows 95 Startup menu.

reset the display in safe mode and it should boot ok in normal mode next time.
