Smile Total Newbie! 'Cannot Display this Video Mode' problems


Hello! I just got a new (to me) computer with Ubuntu 11.10. I'm using a Dell E173fpb monitor. I'm having some issues with it, when I start the computer, it says 'Cannot Display this Video Mode". When it starts up, everything looks great. But if I lock the screen or log out, when I come back everything is all funky! Most of the programs looks fine, but the desktop wallpaper is messed up. I have seen a thread about this issue with this particular monitor, however I am not sure what it all means. I have gone to the Dell website, and there are no downloads available for that monitor. So what can I do? If anyone can handhold me through this that would be much appreciated. Be easy on me, thanks!
If you need to know other specs, let me know. I do not yet really know my way around Ubuntu nor have I ever used Linux before other than just using the internet. Thank you!!!
