Default Linux console flickers

I have installed Linux 8.0 in my system. Linux boots as normal I can login as root in Xserver but for some reason when I change to Linux console (Ctrl+Alr+F1) the console flickers and I hardly see anything. When the Xserver starts it just messes up the Linux console. Does anyone know how to solve this problem.
