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:

In /etc/default/grub change GFXMODE=1280x1024 (my screen resolution)

Also, in /etc/grub.d/00_header insert set gfxpayload=keep on the line after set gfxmode={GRUB_GFXMODE}

Save each file and then run:

sudo update-grub
