Default Big letter after close the X - Geforce 440 drive 5336

Sorry my bad English ...

I intalled the drive 5336, and i had no problems in the X enviroment,
but when I close the X and back to the prompt, the letters are very big and blink. What is ?
If i guess typed "startx" the X enviroment has no problem, but if I close X the big letters are there ..

To lilo users:
change the line in linux section of /etc/lilo.conf to
vga=normal
So save the file and run lilo

To grub users:
change the line in linux section of /boot/grub/menu.lst
vga=0x31a
So save the file and run grub

Default same prob but no luck with fix

I'm having the same prob although I have a GF FX 5200. I tried changing lilo as mentioned, but no luck. This started when I upgraded from a TNT2 M64.
Any other ideas about a fix?
Thanks for input.
