When I installed Feisty on my laptop (it was still running Edgy) I’ve been having trouble with my laptop Geforce 4 420Go video card in combination with the NVIDIA driver. The problem, like most other 420Go users, is the BLANK SCREEN problem, after you boot the screen goes black (or white since your back light is still on)
Those of you having similar problems if you have a Geforce4 420 Go 32MB.
The 9631 driver is looking for a CRT monitor and not and LCD (those of you having the problem on LCD monitors)
to fix this:
edit your xorg.conf
go to Section “Screen”
below defaultdepth, add:
Option “UseDisplayDevice” “DFP”
