    When u were installed the F5, the system should be automatically detect your VGA Card, perhaps there is a problem with your VGA card. Try to re-installed the F5 again. Or you can run setup from the terminal (if you have a chance to get in the Xwindow).

    Inform me if there is another question. Dont hestitate.

    hi kotao_78 !!!

    check /etc/X11/xorg.conf file....

    look for screen and monitior section... check resolution, Modes, HorizSync and VertRefresh... change these settings according to your Monitor's manual...
    if this doesn't sort out your problem... post here Monitor, Screen and Device sections of Xorg.conf file

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
