  1. Recently I have installed the plymouth manager andI accidentally set my resolution to 1024X768-24 which does not fit my laptop exactly and everytime my system reboots an error message shows that error: incorrect settings 1024X768-24. I tried to change the resolution from the System Settings > Display but now only this 1024X768 is shown in the drop down. Kindly help me to reset the display properties to default.

  2. Plymouth is not responding whenI click on it and i want to uninstall it kindly help me in that too.

I think you can solve this by using sudo update-initramfs -u and fixplymouth script

yes, removing plymouth it is very ineffective way. Since it is a boot script manager it's very depend on GRUB settings. Note, that in author repository Plymouth Manager by Mario Guerriero not exist version compiled for 12.04. So, better for you is remove Plymouth Manager (but NOT Plymouth) and next Download SOURCE package and compile especial for your system. –  swift Jul 10 '12 at 15:50
    
though need to say it's very troublesome way ... –  swift Jul 10 '12 at 15:52
    
Look: Plymouth is boot script manager. BUT Plymouth Manager it is an extra level manager over native manager ... –  swift Jul 10 '12 at 16:06
