It sounds like you're using the NVIDIA driver and that the kernel module is
failing to initialize your graphics card.  I would suggest looking at
/var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages for errors.  If you need more
assistance, please run nvidia-bug-report.sh and send the resulting
nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file to linux-bugs at nvidia.com.
