I have recently purchased a 1920 x 1080 screen and the splash screen is all askew at startup and shut down. Is there a way I can fix this to suit my resolution?


Edit your /etc/default/grub file and add the following line:


For Example:

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

Don't forget to set the right vbe mode. Then update GRUB with sudo update-grub.
