On the boot screen, enter "3" in the boot parameters. This will bot in
runlevel 3, which is only text mode.

Login there with the root password, and start:
#sax2 -l

This will start the config utility in low resolution mode. Change your
setup to some lower resolution than 1280x1024. Most probably your
monitor can not use so high res.
