Fixing screen resolution.

So in an attempt to get my screen to show up on my TV I was messing with the resolution. I tried lowering it and now I just get a black screen in normal boot. There's no VGA option in Xubuntu apparently, and I can't figure out how to fix the normal boot from safe mode. Help would be appreciated.

Nevermind about this, because this savage mass of pure god just fixed it himself. Using an incomprehensible quantity of mental prowess I was able to navigate through the menus. In my journies I stumbled upon a relic of two days ago or something, the drivers menu. I switched to the proprietary one and now my normal boot succeeds. Although at the loss of much speed.
