Please verify that you're using the latest BIOS, and generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,

I have a few questions:
0) Did you verify that you're using the latest BIOS?
1) Does this problem persist if you remove 'quiet splash' from your GRUB configuration (and reboot)?
2) Does this problem persist with a more recent (2.6.18.x) kernel?
3) Does this problem persist with the 1.0-9742 driver as well?

Thanks,
Lonni

I have the latest bios.
Im not able to try any newer kernel, or nvidia beta drivers.

I have the same problem with my zepto Znote 6214W. In ubuntu 6.10 the nv driver works fine, but not the nvidia. I also tried the 386 kernel and the most recent nvidia driver, but it didnt help. The problem is not present in ubuntu 6.06..

I still have this issue with my laptop but not my desktop.

My laptop has a geforce 6150 and i just get a black screen and the computer locks.

My desktop has a geforce 7600gt and it works fine without any issues.

I have tried both 32bit Ubuntu 6.10 and 32bit 7.04 and the results are the same.

I am using the latest drivers with no patches applied. Any ideas?

I have the exact same Problem, and it's not solvable using those tips, with a 8800 GTS, 2.6.18 and the 9746 drivers.

Are there any workarounds that work?

Re: switch from X to any tty freezes the macine
 
Those tips includes the requirement that you generate and attach a bug report. That said, which of the 'tips' have you tried that failed?

sorry for being that imprecise.

I have used the kernel-parameters pci=nommconf and idle=poll (together and seperately) when I said "tips"
