Fuzzy textmode

I've been playing with the textmodes of the kernel. This problem semms
to occur in all versions of kernels (I tried it with 2.0.29-2.0.31,
2.1.59-2.1.64). After cold booting my computer the 132x43 mode works
fine. After starting and leaving X(free86-3.3.1) the characters become
"fuzzy". This also occurs when I leave Win95 (restart) and boot into
linux (no loadlin! I'm using lilo) or when I played a game in dos-mode.
It seems that some registers of my graphics cards aren't restored
properly. I'm using a SPEA Mercry P64 V.
