Yes, I was able to capture a screenshot. Taking the screenshot hung the machine for quite a while and the screenshot has more black lines than the screen normally has even.

The problem persists in other modes as well.

Yes - there are no bios updates available from the manufacturer at all - so I'm using the BIOS that the machine arrived with.

Yes. Atleast with a nvidia-kernel module compiled with module-assistant. I am unable to test the debian distribution nvidia-kernel-module because the nvidia kernel module in the distribution at the moment is for 2.6.18-1-686 where as the kernel there is 2.6.18-2-686.
