The splash  shows the 'splash' screen  (the *ubuntu logo on boot)

The quiet tells it not to say anything during the boot.   If your splash 
screen worked and you removed the 'quiet', it would show a summary of the 
boot processes as the machine boots.

You might try adding the  "vga=normal"  at the end of the kernel line and 
leave the quiet and splash.   It might fix the problem.
