Default Re: Crashes on console switch (HP/Compaq laptop)

Updated to latest kernel and reinstalled the drivers. Didn't help.
Removed rhgb quiet line from grub. Didn't help.

I have found that this is not restricted to just switching to a console anymore though. i don't get any display in a text console at all. Whether I 'init 3' or select to shutdown ('init 0'). As soon as the nvidia drivers are loaded once, I get a black screen on any console output forever more. The only way to get console output is to reboot the machine straight into runlevel 3.

This even occurs if I boot into runlevel 3, start x, then select to log off - I will just go to a black screen.
