I'm running 11.04 and decided to spend my winter break tweaking Grub until I could boot directly into tty1 and I got turned around somewhere.
I still boot into tty7 but I have two new problems.
The first is, while Ubuntu is loading, instead of the Ubuntu logo or any information about what processes are being started, I get a flashing cursor in the top left of my screen. The graphical login from tty7 will eventually load up but, until it does, all I can see if the flashing cursor.
The second problem that I have is the screen resoluton on my other tty's has been changed. It looks like it's about 640 x 48. I believe that it had been around 1280 x 720 before.
At this point, I'm just interested in returning Grub to the default settings that existed when I installed 11.04.
Here's a copy of my Grub configuration for reference.

If this helps, these are the commands that GRUB is entering before I boot. I got this information by pressing the E key at the GRUB menu:
