If your graphics card has two ports try the other socket!!

The vesa drivers performance is poor and only 2D. ( give it a go change "fglrx" to "vesa" in xorg.conf )

I have never seen this problem before and suspect a corrupt install ( is it a fresh install ) ?
If it is I would try a clean install (re-install fedora )

Yeah it was a fresh install (2 days ago!) but I'm installing again anyway... All media is verifed and validated also... Tis strange alright...

BTW graphics card had two sockets, I tried both and a different monitor...

I'll post an update later when I've had a chance to reconfigure...

Thanks again

Settng Resolution to 1680x1050

I understand that I have to use the "vesa" driver with FC7 until ATI releases a fixed driver.

However, I can't seem to set the resolution of my monitor to 1680x1050. It is a Samsung 226BW and 1680x1050 is its native resolution.

Does anyone know how to get this accomplished in FC7.

The vesa driver doesn't support resolutions over 1024x768 ( it may be 1280x1024 but no higher ).
You could downgrade xorg as in post #2 then use the fglrx driver.

Thanks for pointing that out. That is what I was afraid of, but could not get a confirm on it. I have no real desire to download as it seems complicated and a source of other problems. I guess I will have to live with 1280x1024 until a fglrx driver is released. Any idea on when that might be?

Hopefully by the end of this month
