    so let's say... figuratively speaking... someone were to change the windows settings monitor refresh rate to something beyond the range of the monitor's physical abilities...

    .. and let's just say that these settings stuck without the usual 15 second test period so that now nothing can be seen but a blank screen.

    anyone know how to boot up in safe mode? (windows NT) or to change the refresh rate in winNT back to a default 65 using only keyboard strokes?

    Right Click on desktop (Hope that you dont hit an icon) and press "R"

    Tab 6 times

    Right Arrow 4 times

    Tab then up arrow 3 times (color Depth)

    Tab then left arrow 3 times (Monitor Res)

    Tab Tab Up arrow twice (Refresh Rate

    Enter then left arrow then enter.

    I've done it so many times, I figured it out once, and see it in my head

    You get an option to boot to VGA mode when you startup.
