If you use GRUB, you could type 'e' when choosing which OS to boot. (If not, there should be some other way to change boot options, e.g. F9). Switch "quiet splash" with "nomodeset" to use older drivers in the boot options. You should be able to boot into your Ubuntu (albeit with low res) and make changes to your driver.
