PLEASe HELP ME!!!! I got a new computer for Christmas and was changing the resolution setting when the screen went black. I have already tried rebooting while pressing f8/shift-f8 and it hasn't worked. I'm using a Toshiba monitor.

Try again with F8! You have to press it over and over again fast. Holding it will not work.

Yes, press F8 repeatedly after that first screen shows up. If you get to the "Safe Mode" selection screen choose VGA mode. Then change it to the correct resolution and re-boot. Oh, is it Windows 8? If so these instructions will be different....
