Default Solaris 10 U5 FB

Hi I've just done a fresh install Solaris 10 U5 on an Acer Veriton 5900Pro after having trashed mu U3 with a OSS sound driver re-install. It has an onboard "Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller" and two nVidia FX 5200 s running xinerama.

I can set the bios to search onboard OR PCI first for video cards.

My problem is that if I set the bios to search PCI for video cards, it finds an nVidia but will not completely boot. It gets through grub, tells me it's booting solaris version blah (about 3 lines) then hangs. The little underscore "cursor" seems to progressively jump down the console screen but nothing else. I cannot get any response from the console not can I ssh to it, ping it or otherwise get any response.

Any help???
