Generally one does not need a framebuffer in order for the screen to work. If
nothing is loaded, then normal boot text mode should be what's operating.

When does your screen become blank? Do you see the grub loader? Do you see any
initial lines if you remove the "quiet" argument from the boot options? Please
send a full dmesg.
