Need to reset Monitor resolution before XP is loaded

I can do an F2/F12 and see it work diagnostics etc. Is there a way I can reset the resolution before XP loads :-(\015
Start the computer in safemode by pressing F8 as soon as you turn it on. Hold the F8 key down until the screen offering you the choice of safemode. (If it starts to chatter while you're holding it down, let up for a sec and then press again). While in safemode, go to Control Panel>System>Hardware Tab>Device Manager. Delete your video drive from the Device Manager. Restart the computer and it should find the video card and be fine.
