Bug Description

I have a 16/10 17inch screen and a graphic card nVidia GeForce. Starting UBUNTU 14.04 after upgrade, the process abort with a little window saying "Correct screen resolution not found" (or something like that). With UBUNTU 13.10 I used a 1400x900 screen size.
Hopefully I can use KUBUNTU 14.04 but with a 1280x1024 resolution wich is wrong for a wide screen.
How can I restart UBUNTU ?
