You don't mention the relevant specifics, such as what video card you have,
or what actually happens when you try Ctrl+Alt+F1.
I can only say that I've been having the same kind of problem on and off
for several years with my Nvidia card. Sometimes I could switch to console,
then later I could switch, but it was all gibberish, still later it just
made my monitor go out of sync etc. etc.
Lately, however, someone pointed me to the vesafb-tng patch , and it
seems to have solved all my problems. :-)
So if you're using an Nvidia card too, I'd say give it a go.
