Default No virtual consoles

Hello all,
I have a question and it may be brand related but was wondering if there is a fix or not.
I have a PNY geforce4 mx420 agp card with the latest drivers and MDK8.2, and all works fine. Now a friend of mine bought an Apollo geforce4 mx440 agp and pretty much the same setup and when he fires up X he loses the virtual consoles but X is fine. We swapped cards and now my mach. has no virtual consoles but his works.
Has anyone heard of this? Is there a fix?
The Apollo card has really fast fps (about
twice my PNY card) with glx so he would like to use that card if possible.

Thxs

this problem can be fixed with a bios upgrade to the video card

As Scooby Doo would say
"rut...roh"
Cant seem to get any info from the manufacturer, (Apollo) they don't seem to have any reference to their Nvidia cards. Is this a bad sign? I sent them an email but I'm not expecting much. Is there a site that has compatable bios upgrades?
