    Re: [SOLVED] tty / console blank after loading nvidia drivers

    I don't really know what the problem could be.

    I tried the same resolution for 16:9 as vga parameter but it doesn't work i think it's a problem with the 9600M GT hast anyone managed to get this working with an 9600 card?

    Re: [SOLVED] tty / console blank after loading nvidia drivers

    I had the same problem. Im running Ubuntu 9.04 on a widescreen HP laptop. My ttys didnt appear after Nvidia driver installation. What I did to fix the problem was go into Start-up manager, change resolution to 800x600, and after that my ttys started working !!! (If you dont have start-up manager installed, install it by sudo apt-get install startupmanager) Simple as that.

    I am beginning to think the same thing. I have a 9600 GT on a desktop, and I can't seem to fix the problem either. This is in addition to a whole slew of other oddities.

    I'll report any updates.

    Re: [SOLVED] tty / console blank after loading nvidia drivers

    I had this problem for ages, and the new nvidia beta driver version: 185.18.10 solves the problem, all the virtual tty's now work.

    can grab the beta driver from here

    ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li..._64/185.18.10/

    or can install it from here and stay up to date when new versions come out. I recommend the below version as I had problems compiling the driver from the nvidia file with jaunty.

    Repo
    https://launchpad.net/~thefirstm/+archive/ppa

    or links to debs if you prefer that way.

    Didn't think it would work because I already tried the 185.18.08 but 185.18.10 really did the trick, downloaded it from the ftp site and it works like a charm, now this thread is really solved.

    hey thanks gpstar! this works! i removed the vga=791 option from my boot options.. everything is working well.
    kinda weird though, on my first restart tty was not available, but now it's ok. after the first restart, i restarted again, and it's all working well now.

    but still i have to press Enter a couple of times when hibernating/suspending/resuming for it to work.. or else,there is no harddisk activity.
