I had googled the page before , and it not works for me .
I have try this several day before and try again just a few minutes .
it not work .
when I add vga=788 to the line of defoptions
, I can see the grub screen ,but no matter I add vga=*** to the kernel line
not .,when the kernel boot up it got a black screen.
when vga=791 to the defoptions line . the grub screen can not be seen , no
even say the terminal screen.
I am quite sure my computer support 1024 768 solutions. since when I used
dappar last year , the vga=791 option can work well for my laptop.
I do not know where goes wrong .
thanks for your help .
appendix is the article , and I have try the A step .

Find the line
# defoptions=quiet splash
and add your framebuffer resolution code, e.g. (for 1024x768)
# defoptions=quiet splash vga=791
(Don't "uncomment" the line - it only works when it is "commented".)
Save the file, then execute
This will now keep even after any future kernel update, unlike the method
below. You're all done.
B. *Manual *
