http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I recently installed F11 x86_64 on my core duo box with an nvidia 7200GS video card with no problems. However, I performed the installation with the VGA port on the video card attached to the VGA port on my Dell 1905FP LCD monitor. When I removed the the VGA cable and connected a DVI cable from the video card to the monitor the screen went blank. On repeated reboots the screen goes blank just before it would bring up the X windows login. I've tried hacking xorg.conf without success. I'm guessing if I had installed with the DVI connected initially I would be all set but would prefer not to reinstall everything. (HowTos)
