Do you use 1280x1024 at all?
If not - removing that resolution from xorg.conf does it.
If you use 1280x1024 later on you should change place with
1024x768 on the line in xorg.conf like so
Code: Select all
SubSection "Display"
      Depth      24
      Modes      "1024x768" "1280x1024" "640x480" "800x600"
   EndSubSection

The first resolutions is the default, but you can set another in "Change screen resolution" in the menu
Before you edit backup xorg.conf
Code: Select all
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf xorg.conf.bak

Then
Code: Select all
 gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
and make the changes - there are several subsections, one for each color depth
There is no simpler way I'm afraid
