that's usually a BIOS setting. Check the manual. 
If it boots up widescreen than shrink to normal (ie BIOS boot msgs are on
widescreen, then SO msgs are on normal width) then there's likely room for 
playing with the console mode set by the bootloader (LILO, grub, ...).
Else (always shrinked) it's all BIOS biz.
