How to solve “cannot display this video mode optimum resolution 1280 * 1024 60 Hz” problem in ubuntu

Posted 05-13-2011 at 01:05 AM by allu john sudhakar

After installing windows 7 and ubuntu 11.04 in a system some times you will not see GNU GRUB. You will get “cannot display this video mode optimum resolution 1280 * 1024 60 Hz” massage on monitor and it will open ubuntu 11.04 directly and you can not chose between ubuntu 11.04 or windows 7

To solve this problem first update system through Terminal type this command $ sudo apt-get update

After update is over you go to update manager and see any updates are available...
