Can you catch those "numbers" to a file?

Yes, definitely. The graphics card bios will reinitialize the 
card in VGA mode, so Linux will be definitely confused if it suddenly
has no pixel based graphics mode anymore.

it means "running after login as a user" as opposed to "running in the
bios" or "running as a part of the (linux) kernel"
