Can't get into Windows boot menu because of Bios

I built my own computer and I have an Asus P8Z77-V motherboard with ASUS UEFI BIOS and Windows 7. I was stupid and set my screen resolution too high, so now I have a black screen. The problem is that I can't access the Windows boot options to change to low resolution because the F8 key takes me to the BIOS boot menu (with options to boot from the drive or a disk, and no way that I can see to adjust resolution). The only way I can enter Safe Mode is if I force off the computer, and then the option to go to safe mode pops up automatically. How can I access the Advanced Windows Boot Options if the F8 key is no longer mapped to it?
