I am having this same problem and so far haven't been able to find an answer. I do not have another video card to use and I'm not sure how to find out what kind of card I currently have. I have tried booting using failsafe and the screen is still scrambled. Can someone please tell me where to begin with this problem? I am very new to Linux and I don't really know anything except how to boot using a disk. I do get the "you passed an undefined mode number" error before start up.
I appreciate any help.
