Besides what Tom suggested if you have "hwinfo" installed you can
run as root 'hwinfo --framebuffer' and get the vga codes for your
video card and add it to the grub kernel line as 'vga=code', replace
code with the right code for you system.

I have hwinfo installed but hwinfo --framebuffer gives no response at
all.  hwinfo --short returns three screens of device information but
nothing regarding framebuffer.

Try this as user: su -c 'hwinfo --framebuffer'
