Display resolution issue with Fedora 12

Hi All,

My Fedora 12 is not showing screen resolution beyond 800x600. When I installed latest ATI Radon drivers, screen has become blank and I had to re-install.

Kindly advice me.

Thanks in advance,
Veeranna Ronad.

Are you booting into X (a desktop enviroment) or a command prompt?

If you are boot into X then when your computer is booted (or whenever you think it is booted, as your screen is blank) go ahead and hit ctrl+alt+f6 and wait a second. Does this do anything, or is your screen still blank? If it is try ctrl+alt+f1 to ctr+alt+f5. Anything?


blank, display, resolution, screen
