You would pretty much have to do a fresh install. If /home is a separate
partition and you have a back up, you could use it to store stuff while
wiping the other partitions. And then fix things up afterward.

You can probably work aorund this by manually making an xorg.conf file
that either uses the display size you want, or if that doesn't work,
try having it say to use the vesa driver. That's simple enough to try
that it's probably worth doing before doing a reinstall.
