A, sometimes, simpler solution (if you prefer GUI configuration tools,
or can't find a non-GUI one):
For some systems, you can switch between a few different display modes
by holding down the CTRL and ALT keys, and pressing the PLUS key on the
numberpad one or more times. You may find a screen mode that works,
then you can run the GUI tools.
You can also just switch to a text mode with CTRL+ALT+F1 (F1 to F6,
actually), without having to log in remotely, or change init levels in
Either method is useful when you strike display problems (installations,
swapping monitors, etc.).
