I have this issue since i upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10, and i still have this problem now with 9.04 after i upgraded for 2nd time. In order to access the consoles from 1-6 i have to press the key combination twice. The first time it just flickers and drops me back to the Desktop and the second time it works. Clean install is not an ption for now. My graphics driver was an ATI HD 2900, but i still have this problem with nvidia. So i dont think it has anything to do with it.

Intel Core2 Quad core Q6600
asus P5K premium
4gb of ram
Nvidia 9500 GT
