I am not familiar with Fedora but I am going to guess that the installation CD has a repair option. This might be the quickest path to resolving your problem. In the cases where I have seen a repair option on the installation CD you had to start a normal installation. Several steps into the procedure you would be given the option to repair an existing system.

Distrowatch says that a live CD and a live DVD are available. This would allow you to read the xorg.conf file that is being used by the live system as well as the modules that are loaded. Other live CD and DVD distributions might also provide a working xorg.conf.

Maybe you have changed somehow some Accessibility setting?
But if so, I cannot tell you how to fix it.
