When I boot into the Ubuntu system then there is no problem until I press the login button. As soon as I do that then the screen starts flickering and using Ubuntu becomes impossible unless I go to the system settings pane and reduce the screen resolution. But once I reboot then this problem comes up again and I need the resolution to be the same. There is an option for the default screen resolution in Linux Mint 14 but not so in Ubuntu or at least I don't know about it.

Specs Ubuntu 12.10 dual boot with Windows XP

2 GB RAM 320 GB HardDrive With 34 GB partition for Ubuntu

Monitor Analog, Rez: 1280 by 1024

Please help me with the solution to this.
