IIRC, this was discussed on the ML for ndivia graphic cards, it was due
to a wrong behaviour of the framebuffer and two solutions had been
proposed: either modify kernel parameters in grub or include some module
or others in the initrd image. I'm sorry, I can not remember the
details, but if you looks on and search for
ndivia you should find. Alternatively you could search the ML archives.
