All mentioned computers run Fedora 14 x86_64 with KMS.
On my work machine with an Intel graphics chipset and a flat panel with working EDID, vanilla kernels 2.6.37-rc6 and 2.6.37-rc5 works OK.
On my home machine, with a somewhat different Intel graphics chipset, and a flat panel that does *not* report EDID information, 2.6.37-rc5 works OK but 2.6.37-rc6 blanks the KMS display on boot. I get the "no signal" message on the panel instead of a working display. I was able to bisect this to the following commit:

drm: Don't try and disable an encoder that was never enabled
Prevents code that assumes that the encoder is active when asked to be
disabled from dying a horrible death.
