Hard to say, since you don't say what VERSION of Fedora, on what hardware, with what desktop environment. You also don't say what happened, to cause the problem.
Since you can still log in, Fedora has obviously already loaded. You're having a problem with X windows. If you didn't change anything, your video card may be having a problem, your monitor cable may be loose, etc. Check those things.
You can also boot to text-only mode, runlevel 3. If you still have "half a screen", you've got hardware issues. If not, you can at least check the error message with half a screen.
