I'm not sure if this is a problem with Fedora or with hardware/firmware, but here's what happened:
After using Ubuntu and other Debian-based distros for a while, I finally decided to install Fedora 17 last night. The installation went fine, everything seemed okay except for a problem with X11 not letting me add a mode with my correct screen resolution. I've rebooted it a few times and have had no problems. I put it in sleep mode (or something like that) and left it for the night. This morning I went to start it back up, but it wasn't working, so I force shutdown the computer and go to restart it. I turned on the power, but nothing showed up on the monitor.
The power light is on and I heard the hard drive starting and whirring, but nothing is showing up. I've tried this several times witht the same results. I'm not even getting the screen that shows up before GRUB. Do you have any idea what this might be? Thanks in advance.
