Adding the "ConnectedMonitor" option to XF86Config doesn't change anything.
Adding the "ConnectedMonitor" and the "IgnoreDisplayDevices" options to XF86Config cause X not to start at all.
Switching to another virtual terminal while in X (Ctrl-Alt-F2 for example) gives me a blank screen, and switching back via Ctrl-Alt-F1 does nothing -- I cannot go back to X. My LCD tells me that I cannot display in "that mode". I can still reboot if I do Ctrl-Alt-F2 and then Ctrl-Alt-Delete.
Edit: adding the vga=xxx (where xxx is some number) in grub.conf causes a blank screen at bootup. There is disk activity, though, during bootup, so it sounds like the services are being loaded still. I can press ctrl-alt-del after the disk activity stops, and after a few seconds, the system reboots. Have only tried two values of vga so far. I'm going through the others right now.
