[SOLVED] console mode screen resolution is very low :(

Hi to all.
I installed arch on my PC, it was working very good and the console mode screen resolution was standard.
Today I installed nvidia driver on my pc:

sudo pacman -S nvidia

after installing nvidia driver, my screen resolution in console mode (Ctrl + Alt + [F1 To F6]) is very low. texts are big.
In kde I haven't problem.
I using grub.
How can I fix the problem?
Thanks.

nvidia drivers don't use the regular KMS, thus low resolution in the console (outside of X).
Try https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Uvesafb

Yes, I understand - this is how it looks like without the native resolution.
If you install the nouveau open source driver for nvidia cards, the resolution will be high again.
