Angry Display problems in fedora 8 while installing nvidia drivers


I am new to linux.Recently i installed fedora 8.
Every thing went on well untill i installed nvidia
graphics drivers unknowingly (Because i do not have
a graphics card).I updated the kernel too.
these are the changes i saw

1.Two linux options to boot into
fedora 2.6.23.15-137.fc8
fedora 2.6.23.1-42.fc8
In which fedora 2.6.23.15-137.fc8 shows error messages when
logged in.

2.The title bar does not appear whenever i open any folder
or an application.

3.I get only one workspace.

4.Keyboard short cuts did not work.

5.screen resolution could not be changed.


Please help me to get rid of these problems.

Uninstall the NVidia driver. That should be your first step.

What video card do you have? You may have to edit the xorg.conf file and enter the correct driver for your card.

Once that is done you can work on any remaining issues one at a time.

Open a terminal/console:

$ su -
At the password prompt enter root password
# lspci

Copy and paste the output of lspci here. When entering the commands don't type in the $ and # signs.

EDIT: Although when I think about it you say you have no graphics card. Which leads me to believe you might have an onboard graphics card. In which case it would probably be a good idea to tell us what motherboard you have.
