Default Re: Black screen when switching to any virtual console on VAIO VPCS12L9E with GeForce

The console is present because I can login and executing commands (blind login), and by switching ALT-F7 I can return in graphical mode.

I had the same problem also with previous driver versions with OpenSuse 11.3.

I've tried to use vga=normal as boot option in grub and also NVreg_UseVBios=0 as nvidia module parameter but they didn't help.

I've tried to follow this thread useless .

Any suggestion to solve such very annoying issue?
Are you facing same issue with "Nouveau" driver which comes with OS? Please confirm.
