 Thanks for the tips.

 I did do all the things you metion previously... 
 Also have the X config just fine, fbdev n'all. X recovers if I do Ctr-Alt-F3 and Ctr-Alt-F7 to dopt into concole mode and back to X. Otherwise the screen just stays blank.

 Wierd. Just wierd.

 Perhaps is the initial bootup fbdev stuff thats responsible?

 Im kind of wandering what I have done wrong or mis/un cofigured to have this problem...

 any ideas anyone else?
