Thanks for the suggestion but I have already tried that. When I replace vesa with nv in xorg.conf an error message appears in Xorg.0.log saying
The PCI device has a kernel module claiming it.
and X can't find a screen and stops.
A strange thing that I noticed is that when I use the vesa driver, even when I boot into single user mode I get nouveau messages in /var/log/messages such as this:
[drm] nouveau 0000:04:00.0 Detected an NV50 generation card (0x092888a2).
What is an NV50 generation card? Could its driver be blocking the video driver?
