boot screen where it counts down before it boots is not lilo but rather
grub.

If you press the letter 'a' in grub, it allows you to 'append' arguments
to kernel for booting.

If you add the number one (1) to the boot line, press 'Enter' and press
'b', you will then boot with the option 1 which means boot to runlevel 1

at that point, try executing the command...

system-config-display --reconfig

and see if you can configure the display settings appropriately. Once
you changed your settings, click OK to save the changes and exit. You
can test by running the command 'startx'

If all works well, type 'init 5' to get to normal runlevel or just
reboot by typing 'shutdown now -r'
