    Dear Devils_casper,

    system-config-display does not helped me.So I am posting the xorg.conf file contents .

    xorg.conf

    #Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "single head configuration"

    EndSection

    Section "Files"

    # RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
    # file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
    # no need to change the default.
    # Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
    # By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
    # the X server to render fonts.
    RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
    FontPath "unix/:7100"
    EndSection

    # To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
    # Option "XkbDisable"
    # To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
    # lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
    # keyboard, you will probably want to use:
    # Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
    # If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
    # Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
    #
    # Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
    # For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
    # Option "XkbLayout" "de"
    # or:
    # Option "XkbLayout" "de"
    # Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
    #
    # If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
    # control keys, use:
    # Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
    # Or if you just want both to be control, use:
    # Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

    Did you try pressing Alt+Ctrl+F1 key? Check post #5.
    In case it doesn't work, Highlight Fedora title in GRUB Menu, press 'a' and type 3. Hit Enter key. Does Fedora Boot up properly in Command Line Mode?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    If one distro supports it, they all should. It's just a matter of having the correct kernel and correct configurations in place.

    That's not always an easy chore, however.
