Default Problem with fonts in console

I use the Debian OS on my laptopAcer TravelMate 3043.
Earlier I used Debian Lenny AMD64, which I have upgraded to Debian
Squeeze AMD64.

I had no such problem with Debian Lenny, but after upgrading to Squeeze
the fonts in my console became very small.
I tried "sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup" and "sudo dpkg-reconfigure
console-cyrillic" but I have had no any success. (Under Lenny I had
configured my console fonts such method without any problems).
I tried to set "vga=792" into my /boot/grub.cfg but have no success too.

How I can resolve the above problem?

I had similar problem in squeeze, but i solved this just run "sudo
dpkg-reconfigure console-setup"

Encoding to use on the console UTF-8
Character set to support # Latin1 and Latin5 - western
Europe and Turkic languages
Font for the console VGA (TerminusBold or TerminusBoldVGA may
be better)
Font size 16

Hope this can help you!

I tried many fonts and their sizes but the problem didn't disapper.
And the space about 1/5 of my display (on the right) under console
aren't workable.
It seems to me that probably it is a problem with settings of vga.
But when my system starting, before the messgae "console: switching to
colour frame buffer device 128x48", I have normal fonts as in Lenny and
full screen. Beginning this message fonts and workable screen space size
are maked smaller.

Yes, It's the default configuration in squeeze, but i don't kown in lenny.

It seems that the default font for the console is "Fixed".
"Fixed" and" Terminus" fonts in console is small and ugly for me.

see below, I copy it from console-setup

"VGA" has a traditional appearance and has medium coverage of │
│ international scripts. "Fixed" has a simplistic appearance and has │
│ better coverage of international scripts. "Terminus" may help to reduce │
│ eye fatigue, though some symbols have a similar aspect which may be a │
│ problem for programmers. │
│ │
│ If you prefer a bold version of the Terminus font, choose either │
│ TerminusBold (if you use a framebuffer) or TerminusBoldVGA (otherwise).

if you run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup" and select "Fixed" or
"Terminus"
as the the default fonts in console, the fonts is still small.
Choose "VGA" as the default fonts and set font size to 16 is good enough to me.
You can try "TerminusBold" or "TerminusBoldVGA", they all better than "VGA".

Then, reboot the computer, the fonts in console will change.
Sorry for my English.

Good Luck!

Did you try reboot your computer after run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure
console-setup"?

you should edit /etc/default/grub to change vga settings but not
/boot/grub.cfg if
your current installed is grub2.
