FreeBSD and Xorg Screen blanks after exiting

I just installed FreeBSD 5.2.1, and Xorg 6.7.0 and have everything up to date with port. Well, X works and all but after exiting X the console screen is blank or while in x switch over to a console. I can still issue commands such as reboot and startx, others im sure work but cant see it.

Has anyone ever had this problem and is there a way to fix it?

Oh the card uses the chip set SIS315pro AGP, it also has tv out but dont care about that feature, only mention incase it has something to do with this. Using the supported sis driver for X.
