I need some help here. I was running 7.10 on my laptop. Today, I plug in the docking to an Apple Cinema Display 20". It worked except the resolution is at 1024x768. I went to system, administration and change the screen display setting for screen 1 to Apple. Picked up Cinema Display and set to a high resolution. I was then prompted to log off to take effect. I followed but when the machine restarted, the external Apple monitor went blank. The screen on the laptop went blank too.
I disconnected the external display and rebooted, I was greeted with the 'normal' login screen except it is all smeared in I guess higher resolution but I could not figure out where the login field was not to mention trying to login with a password.
I know there should be a way to log on to Ubuntu perhaps in text mode and log on as root and make restore the video format.
I am not too familiar with ubuntu, would someone show me how to overcome this?
Any help much appreciated.
