I have a new AMD 7850 graphics card and have the AMD 13.4 drivers up and running fine, games/wine/amdcccle etc work great. The issue I have is that I am unable to CTRL-ALT-Fx back to a console. The screen just goes black and nothing happens. I can switch back to X no worries. Exiting X back to the command prompt has the same effect, its like the resolution is staying at 1680x1050 so the console cant show anything?
I followed the guide here on the forums to get the driver working. http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=17948
My kernel command line is...
linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.8-10.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64 root=UUID=8e76d2a2-d98b-4236-84f0-66d4c4207e6c ro quiet nomodeset radeon.modeset=0
Any help would be appreciated!

I tried adding nofb and nothing changed. I dont think its loading a fb anyway. Everything is fine until I load X and then there is no turning back
Ive tried googling this and the only thing that turned up was something about removing 'quiet splash' from the grub command line which I had already.
I also tried turning off the grub graphical console which lets me see the kernel boot without switching modes, but I still cannot return to consoles.
This is what i have atm.
