So boot into 'text mode' and fix the X windows configuration......

When the grub splash screen is displayed press any key
Select the Linux boot choice and press the 'E' key
Select the line that begins with something like 'kernel /vmlinuz' press the 'E' key
At the end of the line add a space followed by the number three (3)
Press the 'Enter' key followed by the 'B' key

Log on as root (supply the password when prompted)

Try typing something like;

system-config-display --reconfigure --set resolution 800x600 --set depth 16

This should get a generic working X window configuation, to test type; startx

If not, try again this time add the switch --set driver vesa to the command above.
