Graphics card problem

I had my mobo changed and everything keep unchanged. When I boot Fedora Linux, it told me that there is some problem with the graphic driver(something like that).

Now, I could not start xwindow or I don't know if I could boot succesfully. What can I do to make the grahpic work in my new mobo and how to solve this problem ?

You need to login to the command line interface as root and do
init 3
To start X after reconfiguring the card, do
init 5
