what is your 3d card and HAVE you installed a driver for it ?

fedora ONLY INSTALLS THE FREE AND OPENSOURCE DRIVERS . it dose NOT install the ATI or Nvidia drivers you need to install those .

You should not install any extra drivers for your video card. The last version of the proprietary drivers that support your GPU are fglrx 9.3, and they will not work on Fedora 11. Use the open source drivers that Fedora 11 ships with.

As I said, Fedora ships with them. They should be enabled by default. What makes you think you need to install any drivers at all?

Just some advice first, for the future. It is always best to describe the problem you are having and getting peoples suggestions on how to fix them, rather than jumping to your own conclusion and asking the wrong questions.

So please attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file to a post here (or use a service like http://pastebin.com/ ) and maybe we can see what is going on. Also, what is the output of 'xrandr' ?

You are using the vesa driver in your xorg.conf file. You should either be using the 'radeon' driver in your xorg.conf file or not even use an xorg.conf file.
