How can you change a computers resolution without displaying windows?

Recently I was updating my video card and during the update my computer ejected the video.My computers resolution went down to 800x600 so I went into the settings to bring up the resolution.I brought the resolution all of the way up thinking my monitor could handle it but once I raised it up my monitor blacked out and said frequency out of range.When I restart my computer the normal sounds are played but my monitor still displays the frequency out of range error message.

    Reboot the computer and press F8 before getting into Windows. Choose to boot into Safe Mode. Then change your resolution there. It won't show it changed, as Safe Mode locks it into a very low resolution. But it will propagate across to the normal mode. Reboot to check.
