After a kernel update my computer no longer has any video display when it boots. It worked fine previously.

I have a GeForce 7300 GS and am using the nouveau driver. Is there something I need to change to make this work?

Please use an older kernel (you can select it at boot time from the grub menu) for the time being, and continue to update your system regularly. It could be a regression caused by a kernel update or a nouveau update. The following log would give you more information (you can use a virtual terminal ctrl alt f3) to look at it):
