Thanks again for your input and time to find those links to share. The 
last with text was ticket for me. No need for vga=0 with that.

The only downfall though with having to do this is if I go to a 
different TTY the text is massive, I get why it is just sucks, I liked 
having normal size text when on the terminal.

Again thank you, hopefully Nvidia will get this sorted out soon and can 
go back to the old method.
