Solved My son hit my keyboard......

My two year old son walked up and took a swing at keyboard one day. I own a Toshiba Satellite A205. The aftermath was, my screen resolution went way high, the screen went sideways, and the mouse didn't work. I've fixed the mouse and the sideways(control -alt-arrow key). Anyone know the key shortcut for the resolution? Any help is highly appreciated.....

OK Everyone, My screen was too distorted to actually fix the resolution. So, instead of searching for a toggle for the resolution, I went to safe mode and wrote down each key stroke it took to go to display settings and fix the resolution to where I could see again. Then, I went to my profile and followed the steps. It was a long shot, but it actually worked. So call this case closed. The two Lessons: Safe mode can be a template and Keep the Boy away from the keyboard!
