I have a GeForce 210 by Asus.  With the latest Mandriva version of nvidia it 
gives a display, but on logging out and some desktop changes, it shows a 
checkerboard of previous screens.  On advice, I added the backports repo, and 
the version there (260.19.36) fixed it.

Running Mageia Beta with all updates and the nouveau driver, things are how 
they used to be under Mandriva.  This isn't really a bug; the nouveau driver 
is behaving like the nvidia one, and the next round of updates should fix it.  
I have never had a blank screen, but  I couldn't configure nNidia's own driver 
under Mandriva.
