Is your server deserving of a brand new monitor just to run the latest Ubuntu Server version?
I say, heck no.
vi /etc/default/grub
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset"

and uncomment:
GRUB_TERMINAL=console

update-grub

reboot....

swear, and go in to the bios to allow the reboot to happen
(on loss of power = power off = bad).
