Black Screen@Installation RH9

I have problem installing RH9, when anaconda starts my screen goes black and seems to be stucked. It loads VESA generic. I asumed it was a problem with graphical enviroment so I tried installing in text modus. Installation worked but when I rebooted and linux went into graphic enviroment my screen goes black again..monitor is still powered on but its just all black. Installed again selected VESA first then Nvidia Geforce FX(I have Geforce FX 5200) but both have the same problem.

Can anyone help me?

..sorry for my bad english
