try booting in safe mode

As the PC starts tap F8
you should get a menu -
boot into safe mode
then goto display - properties - screen resolution and change the setting there - This has worked for me before on one occasion ( I did not expect it to, as in safemode it should load a generic vga drive - but it did work and fixed the issue) good luck
