Good troubleshooting call.
I just tried both 'nomodeset' and 'text'.
With either, I still get the same behavior that the system boots to a black screen.
I now suspect this isn't nvidia related at all but in fact more has to do with the fact that my Alienware 17 R5 uses a chip set which
apparently Linux power management / etc doesn't like very much.
It took me forever to find a distro that would work at all, and now it appears that even my beloved Kubuntu has decided that I suck for not having bought an approved laptop :)
Next time around (in 3-4 years given my budget :) I will be more careful.
