It seems that NVidia was only one of several video chipsets that causes the system to not initialize a display *at boot*.

Others that I've had blank screens on boot:

Sony Vaio PCG-7Y2K laptop Intel 945 mobile chipset ATI X1600 XT (PCIe) nVidia 8800 GTS (PCIe)

Success with Gateway laptop (Radeon mobility) Success with Dell Inspiron 1420 (nVidia Corporation GeForce? 8400M)

This is at boot-up display initialization, not X initialization.
