The live cd does have a "safe graphics mode" but that only impacts the 
resolution kubuntu boots in, it has no impact on the resolution X starts 
in, so the issue still occurred.
Also for some reason I could not used ctrl-alt-F1 to switch to that tty 
session, but I could use ctrl-alt-delete to reboot the live cd, which 
made no difference to the sound issue in windows.
