If everything works you don't need to worry, but if you're curious read

If you mean the text on the console that it's

dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

and the font you see is called Terminus. Apparently it was created for

I don't understand, you installed the firmware and it still hangs or you 
can't find the firmware? If the later its firmware-linux (according to
