Please define more precisely what problems you're having with graphic mode?
Does it start up at all? Any error messages? Does it boot to the command line or does the boot sequence hang?

A quick Google search on "fedora grub single user mode" or "grub single user mode" turned up
several useful links that tell how you can boot single user mode from grub.

You could also try to repair the installation by trying to boot from the install CD/DVD.

when you see the boot menu, edit the kernel line by adding " 3" to the end of kernel line,
this will boot fedora into run-level 3 which is text only command line

Try booting to runlevel 1 (single user mode) rather than 3.
Any error messages before the "boot has failed" message (ie indicating a reason why it fails?).
Is the "quiet" boot option used? If it is, then try removing that to get more clues.
