Nothing responds. I am absolutelly cluless. Untill yesterday i was using FC12 i686 and never had this problem, but i got 4GB ram so in order to get those fully i installed the 64bit version. On clean install of the 64bit ver everything went fine, but i updated the system and followed theese instroctions [LINK]http://www.howtoforge.com/the-perfect-desktop-fedora-12-i686-gnome[/LINK] and that's all.

Before i atempt to login i can ssh to the machine.

I would appreciate youre help because I don't like the reinstall sollution, with youre help i might just learn something new!!

THX in advanc!!!

It sounds like you're having a kernel panic, from the console try to update the kernel and reboot... or revert to a previous kernel and see if that resolves the issue. Do your logs say anything?

How about a manual update of the kernel via rpm? try dmesg and see what it reports for one, then check your messages file for any information that seems 'odd' around time of boot.

Hi, I've just figured uot what was my problem...the extra 2GB of RAM that I've added recently.I ran a memtest and the answer hit me in the face; the dimm was broken.
THX everybody for support.
