Hello Ismail

It sounds to me like you are describing a frame buffer problem in that
fedora is not able to adequately control your video card.  This in my
experience is not uncommon with intel video, however Fedora (so far)
seems better than any other distro I've tried.

you could try using a kernel parameter to change the FB settings. this
is done by adding 'vga=xxx' to the kernel parameters line of your
grub.conf file. the 'xxx' needs to be replaced by one of the values in
the following table:

colour          depth   | 640x480  800x600  1024x768 1280x1024
256                (8bit)  |  769          771             773   
     775
32000           (15bit) |  784          787             790           793
65000           (16bit) |  785          788             791           794
16.7 Mill.      (24bit) |  786          789             792           795


This should only affect the display you see when fedora is booting, or
when you use the Ctrl-Alt-(F1-F6) or run level 3 (these are usually
referred to as TTY1-TTY6) and possibly won't solve your problem (I
have had a machine similar to yours for 2 weeks and I haven't noticed
a problem as severe as yours I tried many boot CDs that would not work
though the FC6 liveCD works well and I have not yet installed FC on
that machine).

I hope this helps you

Scott
