Default Black screen (no signal) when entering Virtual Console

Hello there! I installed Linux with the OpenSuse distro couple of days ago so I'm totally noob

After a few hours I managed to install the nvidia drivers for my screen card, geforce 8800 gts.

I'm running on a 19" widescreen and using the resolution 1400x900. Gnome runs fine, but the problem is when I push ctrl alt f1 to enter the virtual console. The screen goes black and my monitor says no signal. I then push ctrl alt f7 to get back in desktop and everything works fine there. I guess the monitor cant handle 1400x900 in virtual console or something, but I'm not sure.

Anyone who know the solution for this problem? Remember I'm new to linux so don't be to advanced in your explanations
