Uh oh. So I didn't like the resolution of the monitor (800x600) and I changed it to 1024x768. It told me I had to log out to see the settings, and now I can't see the login screen. I've tried entering recovery mode, and all I can see is the command line. Is there a way to change the resolution from the command line, or default it? Thanks. :/

Also I tried xrandr and it said it couldn't display it.
