Some NVidia-Cards have a problem when running with framebuffer dribers
(that is the driver, which shows you a little boot pinguin in the corner
when booting). Therefore it is sometimes necesary to disable that with a
boot parameter.

It might be possible, that your lilo.conf contained such a line (eg.
"vga=normal"), while your grube conf does not.

Well, but after thinking a lit deeper: If that would be the case, you
shouldn't be able to see anything, not even after 10 seconds...

Well, micht be worth a try. Shouldn't damage anything to test it our.

Yours sincerely,
