I am a first time Linux user. I've installed Fedora Core 3 onto a Compaq 700Z Presario laptop. From the first graphical installation screen to the current install of X, I have a corruption that "blurs" the bottom third of the screen. I can scroll the mouse into the blur area and interact with buttons I know are there, but the corruption remains.
The Presario runs on an S3 Twister (KN133). I have attempted to alter the resolution as well as the graphics driver (stepped it down to a generic S3 driver). I have ported the signal from the laptop out to a CRT monitor. On the CRT the blur is not present, but the area effected by the blur is just black and not present.
Any help would be appreciated. I am a total Linux noob, so any help you provide will probably have to be spelled out pretty clearly to be of any assistance.
