Edit the boot commands in GRUB, add a space and the number 3 to the kernel
command line (telling the kernel to boot in runlevel 3, i.e. without GUI), log
in as root and run:
system-config-display --reconfig
Configure a valid (resolution, color depth, refresh rate) triplet, click OK and
reboot (this time without forcing runlevel 3).

system-config-display --reconfig doesn't work from linux rescue.

This whole problem came about because I changed the display setting from within KDE even though it had correctley identified the monitor and gave me a list of valid resolutions.

In the future is anyone changes the display resolution it would be best if I had a default caonfig file I could restore.

When you update the display resolution, what file gets updated on disk?.
