Sorry, I didn't mean for you to set it to 65536. I was simply using my settings as an example. You should have set VideoRam to however much memory your card has. You'll either have to guess or find it on the web. If you decide to try to guess start with 2048 then 4096 and keep going up by 1024 until it doesn't work anymore.

You should be able to press CTRL-ALT-F1(all at the same time) and get to a virtual console. Log in as root and make the setting change to /etc/X11/XF86Config.
