How can I change screen resolution without using Explorer.exe or my graphics card settings.

Both crash every time I try.

even if you boot into safe mode? – EBGreen Aug 29 '11 at 18:33
Nice idea. I think it still wouldn't work because I may have a very strange graphics card problem. – wizlog Aug 29 '11 at 18:36
Have you tried reinstalling your graphics card driver? – cantfork Aug 29 '11 at 18:40
It worked. If you add that as an answer, you'll get the credit. – wizlog Aug 29 '11 at 18:44

More than likely, you have a bad/incorrect driver installed. However, here is a program that will let you change resolutions quickly.
