    Fedora 17 - No video after boot


    Hi,

    I'm new to the Linux world and I'm having issues. Screen goes blank after Fedora boots up. I can see the POST and Fedora Grub screen but afterwards, goes blank. I believe I installed something but I cant remember what....its been a couple days.

    Welcome aboard!

    I haven't used Fedora in a while, but maybe I can help.
    After installing, was the system working properly? Or did it start having issues afterward?
    Can you give us your system specs?

    Hello I am having similar issue. I made a post about it that is currently on page one. Here is what I did to get into minimal GUI:

    1. restart system. When you get to boot menu, scroll to appropriate OS (Fedora or Fedora 64 etc)
    2. now press 'e' and this will bring you into a config file.
    3. comment out the line 'set gfxpayload=keep' ; in other words place a hash mark at beginning of line: #
    4. Hit F10 and this will boot you to a broken GUI but servicable as temp solution.

    I am currently still in the process of attempting to get my graphics setup working properly. Let me know if you find any solutions to your problem.
