OK so this is going to be kinda hard to explain...
But after I log into Fedora's GUI, everything intiially looks alright, but when I open windows etc.. I get a weird ghosting, missing, background, overlapping, effect that makes reading or clicking on anything in the window possible.
I have tried to get at the Display tools and tweak the video card and monitor, it's tough but I can mange it after about 30 minutes of minimizing and maximizing the window to get it to paint correctly.
At one time I had everything appearing correctly, but then got wiley and tried to increase my resolution, and then it went back to this, which is the way it was right after first install.
Is there a default super safe setting for the xorg.conf file? I cant seem to find one anywhere. And if there is, how would I get at it to make the changes?
I think the system was running that script, because sometimes i would select a video card driver that wasnt compatible and then dumped me into a video config prog that looked DOS based. it would set my card at Intel 816, but then after returing to Fedora desktop, i still got crazy behavior.
right, exactly, it's that "safe setup" was what was still bad, which is what lead me to suspect my video card was bad. and sure enough it must have been cause i have been fine since replacing it.
thanks for the help.
