Default Screen stays black after switching virtual console or after quitting Xorg

As subject says whenever I quit Xorg or switch virtual console using Ctrl+Alt+F? from X, the screen gets black and cannot be recovered, even when trying to switch back to the virtual console X is using; however the computer is still responding to keyboard action, so I've been able to create a bug report log with the nvidia tool.

Said behavior only happens with drivers newer than 1.0.9631.

EDIT: I checked better and the display does return to X if I switch back to the X virtual console or if I manage to blindly relaunch Xorg from the shell, sorry for the mistake.

Default Re: Screen stays black after switching virtual console or after quitting Xorg

updated bug report with driver release 100.14.09

EDIT: To recap my problem: On my Sony Vaio FS-215S (nvidia geforce 6200go) I am not able to use the console (Ctrl-Alt-F[1-6]) after the X server gets loaded: the screen remains black but the backlight is on. The computer, however, remains functional and I 'm able to switch back to the X server "console" (Ctrl-Alt-F7).
I've tried both the plain VGA console and the framebuffer console using the vesa framebuffer driver, but nothing changed.

EDIT-2: not fixed with 100.14.11

For that reason I keep my laptop (with a 6600) on 9631. You are not alone.

I'm pleased I'm not alone, so I know the problem isn't in my setup.
Let's hope nvidia driver guys fix it...

I too have this problem using Fedora 7 system with:

xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-100.14.11-1.lvn7
kmod-nvidia-100.14.11-1.2.6.21_1.3228.fc7

I noticed it once with an earlier version of the driver, but with this
most recent update, the console video is out of range (according
to my monitor's popup) every time I exit X.

The console video is fine when I boot, but once I run startx and
bring up X for the first time, no more console video.

This sounds exactly like the problem I'm having, and reported earlier today here.

I didn't start having the problem until I enabled the "NoMaxPClkCheck" flag to get 1920x1200 to work on my single link DVI-D.

Default Re: Screen stays black after switching virtual console or after quitting Xorg

Using the nvidia Linux driver 100.14.11 built on my machine for 2.6.17-14mdv kernel (and others), I get the same 'out-of-range' problem when shutting down or switching to virtual terminals on my Sony flatscreen (not when booting). Seems that using the analog connectors does not have this problem, only dvi with the later nvidia. The nv driver, also, does not have this problem on the same install but the video is not as nice. Guess I'll go back to something earlier. Thanks for reporting!

Just a little update. I installed 1.0.9639 and, at least, virtual terminals are OK. I expect problem solved, also, for shutdown messages.
