I added these in /etc/default/grub, then ran update-grub (my monitor has 1280x1024 resolution).

The vga=code options are deprecated, although it worked too after getting a message from the kernel (i actually set 1280x1024 , dont remember the actual vga code).
I have a A8-5500 APU and it was stable with any driver since 13.2 so maybe the 7xxx IGP series are better supported?
