    Hello and Welcome to the forums.

    You might be able to dig through the error log and find some clues, or just post it up here.
    This command should list all the errors, give it a try as root.
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log |grep -i EE

    Did you install xorg-server manually? Can you post the entire /etc/X11/xorg.conf file please?

    So, you're running in a VM.....that kind of changes things a bit. Tell us what you are attempting to do here please. Did you download the newest Fedora and you want to test it in a VM? You shouldn't need to use the startx command if that is the case because usually Fedora, as most other distros will launch directly to the desktop unless you have a problem.
