Exclamation X Server wont load since updates!

I have been messing with Linux a good amount for the last week or so, and havent come upon this problem yet (obviously) nor have a come across it on any forums!

I finally got into Fedora Core 6 after a few hours of figuring out how to fix it displaying out of frequency for my monitor. (Turns out all I had to do was switch kernels in the GRUB boot loader)Im all logged in, it works great! It says I have like 135 updates available... ok so I install. Bout 25 minutes later when it finishes, I reboot like it asks. But when I boot up, my monitor is flickering off for about 1 second in intervals of 4 seconds. K... THEN, it says X Server cant load. When it tried different setups, it goes out of frequency again. I tried on both Kernels, it just wont load.

Edit: XServer, not XWindow. Got confused.

I you haven't reinstalled yet post your xorg.conf file.
It's in /etc/X11/
And the xserver has probably created a crash report - post that too if possible.


fc6, fedora, xwindow
