Unhappy Fedora 12 screen becomes blank


I have windows 7 on my laptop (Dell Studio model). I have installed fedora 12 onto my machine in the unallocated space, the installation went smoothly.
If I login to the fedora directly then every thing works fine.
but if I login to Window 7 and again try to re-login into fedora 12 after shutting down the winows 7 then the booting screen will become black (almost invisible) even though I can be able to login and can go to the desktop (which is also very least visible) if i click on suspend and then click on the power button then the screen will become properly visible.

Please help me out of this weired problem...

I had a somewhat similar problem on my FC12 install, but I wouldn't get the X to start. I ran a full update and that fixed it.

su -c 'yum upgrade'.

Do your laptop have an "eco" button?
