The same to me
The same happends to me.
I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 with an nVidia GeForce 4 440 Go and a 1600x1200 flat panel.
Everything seems to work. The kernel module loads with no problems... and the X server starts... but in the screen everithing is weird... I have tried everything. Installing older linux kernels (2.4.19 and 2.4.18). Using and not using frame buffer.
I have read the driver manual and used a lot of the driver parameters. Actually, the screen remains blank unless I explicitly say that I am using an LCD.
I am going crazy... what can I do?
