After install, fedora starts, does startup, black screen with blue bar at top?

I recently installed Fedora, install went just fine, popped the disc out and asked me to reboot.

It goes through the usual startup stuff, then I just get a black screen with a little blue bar at the top, no mouse cursor. However if I move my mouse to the top of the screen, I see what appears to be the top of a cursor on the little blue bar. I take it this is some sort of video problem, my card is the eVGA x8800gts card, so I assume it may not be compatible? Thanks guys!

PLease post your /etc/X11xorg.cofg and /var/log/xorg to here. Therefore, linux user all around the world will help you. Did you try the set up the livna repository as command below

rpm -Uvh -- This command uses to set up the livna repository.

After you have done this command, please type

yum install kmod-xxx

xxx is graphics driver for your card.

please search it at google.
