Hai my linux friends,my fedora10 machine is not working properly because some graphics problem:Problem is that,

After installation done successfully,when the s/m boots again a msg like this "ForceXPAon :0" comes repeatedly.When I press 'Enter key' s/m comes to normal mode [localhost@localdomain#].
