Unhappy Re: G210m Blank Laptop Display

Having issues with a Sony VAIO VPCCW1FFX that has this card:
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 230M] [10de:0a2a] (rev a2)
Code:
alex-mayorga@VPCCW1FFXL:~$ get-edid
get-edid: get-edid version 2.0.0
mmap /dev/zero: Operation not permitted
get-edid: error initialising realmode interface
get-edid: do you have full superuser (root) permissions?
alex-mayorga@VPCCW1FFXL:~$ sudo get-edid
get-edid: get-edid version 2.0.0

	Performing real mode VBE call
	Interrupt 0x10 ax=0x4f00 bx=0x0 cx=0x0
	Function supported
	Call successful

	VBE version 300
	VBE string at 0x11100 "NVIDIA"

VBE/DDC service about to be called
	Report DDC capabilities

	Performing real mode VBE call
	Interrupt 0x10 ax=0x4f15 bx=0x0 cx=0x0
	Function supported
	Call successful

	Monitor and video card combination does not support DDC1 transfers
	Monitor and video card combination does not support DDC2 transfers
	0 seconds per 128 byte EDID block transfer
	Screen is not blanked during DDC transfer

Reading next EDID block

VBE/DDC service about to be called
	Read EDID

	Performing real mode VBE call
	Interrupt 0x10 ax=0x4f15 bx=0x1 cx=0x0
	Function supported
	Call failed

The EDID data should not be trusted as the VBE call failed
Error: output block unchanged
On every reboot I get the "purple screen of death", this is on a fully updated Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit using nvidia-current 260.19.06-0ubuntu1.

Any tips?
