Running Ubunto 12 and when the screen reaches the logon window I get a "Screen out of Resolution Range" error on my monitor. I am unable to login this way. When I boot to recovery mode and move into the root command line, it seams to be in read-only mode so I am unable to make changes to my system to correct the resolution issue.

How can I boot the computer strait to command line so that I can login and fix my resolution issues?
