First of all, thank you for replying and I appreciate your time and efforts,
I understand you have installed Ubuntu and now you have an issue with the display, don't worry as I have a few steps which should help you to resolve this concern,
I would suggest you check for the bios update and graphics card update, if available for your PC, using this link.
Next thing, I would suggest is to Uninstall grove, using a third party such as CCleaner and then reinstall it.
I hope this should help. Let me know if you need any further assistance. I'll be more than happy to help.
