Adjusting screen resolution lead to a black screen
#1
I finally received my PBP. And broke it already... I run the default linux Open Sesame, as it comes from the factory.

As I could barely read the small letters with the HD / 1920x1080 resolution, I choose to reduce the resolution.

I changed it from the display settings from 1920x1080 to something like 1360x786 or so.
I clicked apply system wide, and apply.

After a reboot, I get the login prompt. When I login, the screen goes blank and stays blank.

How can I restore the original settings, or boot to rescue mode, or reset factory defaults, without having the GUI? From the console prompt? Or any other option?
