    I was messing around with the monitor preferences while my PB's lid was closed, connected to an external monitor. But I accidentally set the resolution beyond what my monitor could support. I was hoping it would do the 15 sec. revert thing, but no dice.

    Now what do I do? :confused:

    My PB's LCD won't turn on unless I disconnect the monitor cable (I'm using the DVI>VGA adapter if that matters)... And when I reconnect it while its on, it goes into my dual monitor setup [which is fine], but when I close the lid again, it reverts back into the unsupported resolution.

    I'm lost... How do I revert to the "Default" resolution while in closed-lid mode? :confused: :confused:
