Fix by:

sudo apt-get install -d splashy
sudo dpkg --force-overwrite -i /var/cache/apt/archives/splashy_0.3.13-3ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst

Find the kernel line and add 'vga=791' to it

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-generic root=/dev/sda5 vga=791 ro quiet splash

Save and exit using 'CTRL + X' & 'Y'
