Re: monitor cycles on-off after boot
Are you using nomodeset kernel boot parameter? I discovered that I needed to use that for nvidia in 11.10 even when I did not need to use that in 10.10 with the exact same nvidia driver version. Apparently in 11.10 nouveau and nvidia need to cooperate, which they cannot do using default KMS (kernel mode setting), but can do as old fashion modules.
Kernel driver in use: nvidia
Kernel modules: nvidia_current, nouveau, nvidiafb
PS: my GTX 550 Ti is EVGA, the failed GT 430 was a Chinese Galaxie
