Maybe the driver is not yet loaded when it is supposed to run. If so, this may fix that:

echo FRAMEBUFFER=y | sudo tee /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
sudo update-initramfs -u

This wasn't enough for Ubuntustudio 13.10. In addition to the commands above: –  mchid Nov 15 '13 at 8:35
1. echo FRAMEBUFFER=y > /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash 2. in /etc/default/grub -> GFXMODE=1280x1024 (my screen resolution) 3. in /etc/grub.d/00_header -> after set gfxmode={GRUB_GFXMODE} command insert set gfxpayload=keep 4. Save files and run update-grub –  mchid Nov 15 '13 at 8:43
