also, what graphics card do you have? if you have an nvidia or ati card and have not gotten the correct drivers for them, and then updated XF86Config (or xorg.conf if using the xorg server) this could be the cause.

hope this helps.

Talking Same problem here

I had the same issue when I installed fedora core 1. it was related to the video card driver. as long as I used a the default driver. when I loaded my new driver poof monitor pops up. Done deal.
