a) You just made some changes in X that caused it to lock up the display.
   Magic sysreq got you out alive, but now you would like to boot to a
   console to fix it.

b) Your monitor blew up.  You've got a replacement on hand, but it won't
   work (and may even be damaged) with the current X settings.
