Bug Description

Whenever this computer reboots, it occasionally changes resolution and needs a reboot! It didn't happen for about two days so far but on some days, the resolution changes a lot per reboots, sometimes it changes just one of the reboots and on some other days, the resolution remains what it is supposed to be!

I have no idea what this is caused by some I will give the information on the video card (from lspci) because that is the only relation I can think of:

VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G400/G450 (rev 82)

This is the 32 bit version of Ubuntu 8.10. The computer has 384MB of RAM and has a Pentium 3 850 Mhz CPU.

If more information is needed, just ask!

I experienced a similar bug a while back on Hardy. It stopped once I upgraded to Intrepid. The workaround for a wrong resolution is not to reboot the machine but hit CTRL+ALT+Backspace to restart the display manager - only takes a second or two, and fixed it every time.
