Reviving ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe

I am currently trying to put LXLE on this old ASUS, but am running into a few issues. The only computer monitor I have has a maximum of 480 x 800 resolution, but the current OS (LXE) is trying to output too high a resolution. No monitor, no way to change the resolution output in the OS. Also, the onboard USB card is fried, but I have a working DVD drive to install LXLE, and a PCI USB card for which I'm hoping LXLE will have the proper drivers. 



Is it possible for me to get to the BIOS screen in some sort of safe mode that will project the lowest possible resolution? Or can I access the OS with another computer and change the resolution remotely so I can access the BIOS and change the boot order?

Most computers do NOT need any Operating System whatsoever to get into the CMOS/BIOS Setup. You can actually disconnect any/all drives and still get into the CMOS/BIOS Setup.
