NOOBS Display Output

OK, so if you are going about on your first time running the Raspberry Pi NOOBS SD card, don't freak out when you don't see anything on the screen.  If you have the RPi plugged in, methodically go through pressing 1, 2, 3, and 4 on your keyboard, one after the other, until you see something.  I got ready to "broaden my vocabulary" when my RPi seemed to be haywire again; save yourselves the trouble by changing the display output to conform to your display/TV by pressing 1 through 4 on your keyboard.  After doing so, you will see a very nice interface!  Yay!
