Installed Ubuntu 9.10 onto a clean system, then adjusted the screen resolution to display on (16:9) and then saved the changes thinking that I could re-adjust as necessary. I can't seem to re-adjust the resolution again because the System-Preferences-Display adjustment screen won't scroll down enough to let me change the settings again. Almost everything that I need to adjust is off-screen. Tried control+ and control- to no avail. Installation was so painless that I am willing to re-format, but resolution too big to let me do anything. Can anyone help me, Please?

Try hitting the tab key three times. After that, you can scroll through the resolutions by using the down arrow key. When you want to apply, hit Alt + A. If the problem persists, hit the tab key eight more times. This will put you back at the resolution selection box again.
