Grub should have a 'linux safe mode' or something when it shows the menu and allows you to pick which OS you want. I haven't used grub much yet, buy you somehow need to get into single user mode(this is done with lilo by typeing linux init=/bin/bash rw with LILO. at any rate, get into single user mode or a shell somehow(ssh, whatever). Once you're there, just run Xconfigurator or XFree86config and 'reset' your display settings. it should re-probe for you card, monitor, etc and save that config for you. let me know how it goes :) .djc.
