I have a Sony SDM-M51 that shows up as "default monitor" in my display settings, and so I have resolutions from 800x600 to 2048x1536. I was starting up Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and I decided to change some of the settings to try to increase performance. I was altering the resolution settings and I accidentally set it to 2048x1536. The game automatically shut off because my monitor couldn't support that resolution. Now everytime I try to start the game the screen goes black and my monitor says "Out of scan range" and it takes me back to my desktop. I know for a fact that this problem is happening simply because the resolution is set too high, but I can't get into the game to change it because when I start it up, it boots me out. How can I change the settings back?

Try deleting your set file:
My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\gta_vc.set
