Hmm how is your vga cable, that log says it probes edid 4 times; failing 3 and succeeding ones. Are you using tft or crt and can you use dvi cable instead of vga.
I have VGA cable only with connector for DVI. My monitor doesn't have DVI connector. btw I have LG E2251 LCD.
Hmm LG, it has same named displays for different countries and with different outputs. Check the cable that it has all 15 pins on it, some vga cables might leave some pins out(specially that both 12th and 15th pins exist).

And then probe the edid from the monitor: sudo get-edid | sudo parse-edid
If there indeed are problems getting edid or getting broken edid tables from the monitor, you could check if you can find something from ubuntuforums thread conserning subject matter:
Thanks for reply, but at the end I managed to fix the problem today. I installed 12.04 and checked if there is 3D acceleration with default driver and it was there. Later on I googled how to change resolution on Full HD and managed to do that.

Thank you all once again for your replies, you are all great!!!
