Default Re: Blank screen after second reboot 180.44 Ubuntu 8.10

thanks for the suggestion, here are some updates. upon reading the /var/log/Xorg.0.log, I have found two sources of error: "(WW) Cannot open module "type1" ", and:
"(II) NVIDIA (GPU-0): No display devices connected: falling back to: CRT-0"
"(WW) NVIDIA (GPU-0): Unable to read EDID for display device CRT-0"

and

"(**) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size configured to be 2048 x 1920" (Something tells me it's this, res. should be 1280x1024)
"(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to get display device CRT-0's EDID; cannot compute DPI from CRT-0's EDID."


Also, pretty much any tinkering with the xorg.conf file (such as adding a modeline) results in the dreaded "no screens found" error.
