Screen freezes in safe mode

I bought a new monitor for my computer and was trying to change the resolution because it was in wide screen. I think I made the resolution too high because when I restarted it, after the window xp screen, it was blank. So I tried to change it in safe mode only to have my screen freeze on the second screen as it was opening. The final message was system32\DRIVERS\agpCPX.sys. I don't know if that would mean anything.

Do you think I might have to reinstall my system?

I need direction.

not the system that you will have to reinstall but rather your driver for the vga. try to uninstall it and then reinstall it
Which only goes to show that I know almost nothing about the computer itself. So how would I reinstall vga? (Sorry for my ignorance, that is why I am here.) I can get into the screen that allows me to enable vga, and I have tried that, but when windows come up, I still cannot see anything.
