Installed Fedora and now everything is black
Hello everyone, im new to all this linux since ive been a windoze user most of my life. here is my problem, I have just installed Fedora Core 4 on my laptop, when I finished the installation and was ready to see the wonderfull world of Fedora I got nothing but black screen, it occurs after it boots everything up and ask for username and password then it goes black. So if a Linux Pro out there knows what I might need to do please help me :)

Sorry if there is info missing but im VERY new to this Fedora thing

You have not mentioned what video driver chip is installed in your laptop
(something like ATI Radeon, Nvidia, VIA etc etc..)

You can also try pressing ctrl+alt+the pluskey once if nothing press again(like you always do the ctrl+alt+del in doze)

and be more specific about your Hardware.
