    Unable to access any TTY console

    So, today I wake up not being able to access any TTY console. Ctrl+Alt+F[1-6] is just not working, just open up a completely black screen.

    I tried to switch to true text-mode by configuring Grub, assuming the graphical text-mode resolution set at boot wasn't compatible with my video card.
    Code:
    sudo sed -i -e 's/#GRUB_TERMINAL/GRUB_TERMINAL/g' /etc/default/grub
    sudo update-grub
    But nothing.

    Here's some info:
    Code:
    lsb_release -a && uname -r
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 13.10
    Release:    13.10
    Codename:    saucy
    3.9.0-030900rc3-generic

    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH VirtualBox Graphics Adapter [80ee:beef]

    Fixed.

    Being a perfect idiot, I forgot to reboot after switching to true text-mode and updating Grub. Rebooted and now I recovered the access all TTY consoles.
