Assuming you made the necessary changes to your xorg.conf as mentioned in
the NVidia Readme??
Most importantly changing the driver in xorg.conf from "nv" to "nvidia", and
maybe change the frequency settings to match your Panel.
You "may" need to add these couple of lines to your xorg.conf, I had to do
this to get my DVI to work:
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0"
# Cure Blank Console screens
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV"
The last one fixes Blank console screens on some Fedora setup's, Some output
from your X logs may shed some light on the problem.
