Okay, let me try to understand this clearly.

Are you trying to Install the system?

Did you choose "Try Ubuntu GNOME without installation" OR you chose
"Install Ubuntu GNOME" Directly from the Boot Menu?

The Q is, not what kind of monitor a user may have, the real Q is what kind
of Hardware a user is using?
Let's keep in mind that Ubuntu GNOME is not for old machines and Notebook
with low hardware specifications? I'd be very very interested to know how
Ubuntu GNOME can perform on these machines :)
