I recently set up my computer with an external widescreen monitor, and had to frequently change the graphics settings (every time I connected or disconnected the monitor, booted up, returned from sleep, or even opened and closed the laptop lid). To try to remedy these issues, I downloaded UltraMon as well as MultiMonitorMouse. I had to fiddle around with settings occasionally, as the widescreen resolution wouldn't show up in the list, and I'd have to figure out whether to change the settings in UltraMon, Desktop > Properties, or Desktop > Graphics Properties (a third-party program by Intel, which usually works the best). Recently, after disconnected the monitor and booting up, my laptop boots the log-in screen in a very small resolution, so that I can only see the "shutdown" button. When I disable the log-in screen, the same thing happens to my desktop: I can see a very small version of the taskbar, but there isn't enough space on my screen to be able to change the settings. I can boot into Safe Mode fine, in the odd "safe mode" resolution, but I can't change any settings from there, and my network connections don't work. Any ideas of how to fix this? Is there a file I can edit by mounting from a Linux distribution, perhaps?
Thanks for the help,
Edit: I've tried fiddling around with attaching and deattaching the external monitor, as well as opening and closing the laptop lid, to see if it resets itself to the proper resolution (or at least one that I can use), but to no avail.
