When you're in safe mode set the video resolution and refresh rate to be lower.  That ought to allow you to boot into 2k normally and from there you can change the domain easily.  :-)

Good Luck,

But that's OK... that just means that the PC was sucessfully "disjoined" from the domain, however the domain controller still has an dead account in it's database.  I'm guessing you don't care about a dead account in the domain database... so you can just ignore that message.
