After installing a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 on my PC, Ubuntu can't detect my monitor which is a Phillips 190c 19".

With 10.10, I used 1280x1024 and on Nvidia drivers I was able to see my monitor brand. But on 12.04, I can only see crt-0. I also tried with the command xrandr to add a new mode without any success. See attached screen-shots. Please help.
