In safe mode, go to system, preferences, screen resolution. Pick your resolution/refresh rate and reboot.

Start in recovery mode then in terminal:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Choose vesa driver
the size of the screen you want to use.(disable all the others)
save xorg file

Now the screen is in default, and you can boot.
Now you can start again and install the driver of your videocard, or envy(automatic).
