Blank screen even before BIOS screen on boot
Quite often when I restart my computer (reboot or turn down and then on), the screen remains completely blank, ie it does not even display the BIOS screen.
After a few trys (turn off, wait, turn on), it does work...
Sound odd, eh ?
It happens after having been under linux 2.6, on my Toshiba Satellite P25 laptop. I didn't note it after windows nor after linux 2.4. Video is a NVidia.
Now what I suspect is that linux is doing something weird with the ACPI. Linux 2.6 does switch my laptop off, which 2.4 doesn't, and maybe it puts the screen panel in a sleep mode out of which it doesn't recover on startup ...?
