I have tried modifying the xorg.conf file several times. In best case senario it gets me into GUI, but not into console.
However I did manage to resolve the issue, after doing much research on the web. The issue lies with the driver used for my Matrox P750 graphics card. I had tried downloading the most recent driver off of Matrox's site several times and it would always fail to install due to conflict X Server versions or something, which is reported to be the case with the matrox drivers according to other web posts I've found.
However I found a link to someone who un-officially fixes the Matrox releases to actually work.
For anyone else out there with a Matrox P650, P750 or a Parhelia and needs the most recent drivers that WORK on linux, here is the link:
Hope it works for you too!
Thank you all for your assitance with this frustrating issue.

Well Done !!!
Fedora has a lot of Graphics area. it doesn't configure cards properly and sometimes generic driver "vesa" doesn't work. i am glad you sorted out problem.
