I recently had a hard drive crash, and now I can't find the control panel for the Monitor settings. I'm running OS 8.1. Could anybody be so kind as to email me a stuffed copy of their control panel. It would be greatly appreciated, as my monitor is currently stuck on 800 x 600 and it's driving me crazy. Thanks.

Just re-install the Control Panel from the OS 8.1 CD!
If you don't OWN a copy of Mac OS, I suggest you purchase it... especially for moments like these.

Well there WillyB, thanks for your advice, but I do own a copy of OS8 as well as the 8.1 upgrade, and I'll be damned if I can figure out how to install just the monitor and sound control panel. Perhaps you can tell me how.
