Screen Resolution:1280x1024 Optimum mode-Ubuntu boot problem
After trying Linux from usb, I decided to install it to one of my hard drives.
After installing the Intrepid Ibex Ubuntu to my disk, when I rebooted to login for the first time the following problem occurs.
Grub loads up, followed by booting to linux after which monitor shows the following error:
This error message floats around the screen and after which some weird things happen.
"Not Optimum mode
The Login screen appears but the gui doesn't accept any input from keyboard or mouse.
I restarted 4 or 5 times and each time the same thing happens.
I tried to enter into grub menu but it has only 3 items which are like:
1.Boot into ubuntu.
2.Boot into ubuntu using recovery mode.
3.Test memory using memtest86.
Well as only the second option would make any sense to this problem, I tried this but it doesn't have any choice to change the screen resolution too.
Now I am stumped and don't know how to change the screen resolution without booting into linux.
I am using ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series chipset.
Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated.
