text-mode : console : resolution : vga 80x25 : how to set?

i tried my level best to do it, but have failed.
i used 'dpkg-reconfigure console-setup' and followed the
appropriate steps, but yet my console's screen resolution
is way to high. not that it's a big problem, just an
irritant, the text is usually too tiring to read.

can i be helped?
