I grappled with trying to make heads or tails of this blank screen problem since updating my driver from 310.44 to 319.17 over the weekend. I still haven’t really found an answer.
I’ve got a Lenovo W530 with K2000M GPU running CentOS 6.4. Everything was working fine until the upgrade and then blank screen galore. I have my BIOS set to Discreet Graphics (that means Optimus turned off), as I usually have it. I can’t really make any sense of what’s going on in the logs. I’ve tried setting kernel options to ‘nox2apic’ in addition to the usual ‘rdblacklist=nouveau’. Beyond that, I don’t know what else to try, which is why I’m here. I’d like to learn.
I’ve attached the bug report generated by nvidia-bug-report.sh
It’s verbose because I couldn’t generate it until I got X working again.
I’ve got a lot of 3D production work to do and I need help resolving this as soon as possible. Any help would be appreciated.
