[Solved] Ctrl + Alt + F[1-6] -- no signal on display

02/04/13 I made a full system update. When turned off my PC, I noticed that screen is turned off before the system is actually halted. Well, this didn't made me suspicious.

However, today I decided to make a full update with new KDE. I thought that it'd be rational to do it from the virtual console but pressing ctrl + alt + Fx causes my monitor to turn off. Have I missed something?

[mk@linux ~]$ systemctl list-units --type=target
UNIT                LOAD   ACTIVE SUB    DESCRIPTION
basic.target        loaded active active Basic System
cryptsetup.target   loaded active active Encrypted Volumes
getty.target        loaded active active Login Prompts
graphical.target    loaded active active Graphical Interface
local-fs-pre.target loaded active active Local File Systems (Pre)
local-fs.target     loaded active active Local File Systems
multi-user.target   loaded active active Multi-User
printer.target      loaded active active Printer
remote-fs.target    loaded active active Remote File Systems
sockets.target      loaded active active Sockets
sound.target        loaded active active Sound Card
swap.target         loaded active active Swap
sysinit.target      loaded active active System Initialization

LOAD   = Reflects whether the unit definition was properly loaded.
ACTIVE = The high-level unit activation state, i.e. generalization of SUB.
SUB    = The low-level unit activation state, values depend on unit type.

13 loaded units listed. Pass --all to see loaded but inactive units, too.
To show all installed unit files use 'systemctl list-unit-files'.
[mk@linux ~]$ pacman -Qs nvidia
local/lib32-nvidia-304xx-utils 304.84-1
    NVIDIA drivers utilities and libraries. (32-bit)
local/libcl 1.1-3
    OpenCL library and ICD loader from NVIDIA
local/libvdpau 0.6-1
    Nvidia VDPAU library
local/nvidia-304xx 304.84-1
    NVIDIA drivers for linux, 304xx legacy branch
local/nvidia-304xx-utils 304.84-1

It's a known problem with the nvidia 304.84 driver; so update it to 304.88 and from some users' testimonies it should work again. (I use nouveau presently so I cannot say myself).

+1 on berbae's suggestion.  I had this very problem and did a system upgrade this morning, which included the 304.88 driver.  It now works.
