You complained of tiring text on the console. Have you tried
making the text font bigger, rather than playing with the
resolution?

Try installing the package   console-setup-linux   and then type
$ setfont Lat15-Terminus32x16

See if this is big enough. Then pick a suitable font from
/usr/share/consolefonts/ stripping the .psf.gz from filenames
in that directory like Lat15-TerminusBold32x16.psf.gz

Unfortunately, you don't appear to have told us what you did
or what happened on the console. It would help to know, for
example, the contents of /etc/default/console after doing
dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, and the values given by
$ echo $LINES $COLUMNS
