You may try to use framebuffer mode for text console only,
e.g. add vga=791 to your boot parameters. Your kernel
has to support framebuffer in VESA mode, too. Details
see FrameBuffer-HOWTO http://tldp.org if you are
using framebuffer mode for text console already try
to remove it. Often one of the two approaches works.
