Grub is a bootloader, it doesn't have a graphical mode. It looks to me like your problem is with the driver for your video card. You may need to reinstall it or (possibly) you may be able to reconfigure XF86 so it will work with a more basic, generic video driver. Or maybe it's something else wrong with the way X is configured. If you only have one version of Linux on your Grub menu you are limited to working at that command prompt. Try running xf86config or xf86cfg. If you have another version of Linux on your computer that is working, mount the busted version inside that and have a look at /etc/X11/XF86Config
