This was tested from both X11 and runlevel 3.

After testing it now, it gets worse.  Before I could see something on the screen
ever so dimly.  Now I can not do that.

Would be nice if this didn't flick back from working, to non working, to even
worse between kernel updates.

That sounds clearly like either a X11 driver problem but more likely like a
kernel problem.

Reassigning to kernel.

Read ya, Phil
