    Display garbled after Upgrade FC28 to FC29

    I upgraded a machine from FC28 to FC29. I get a clear login screen, but after I login, the display is garbled. It's as if a normal display has been cut into small blocks and the blocks are displayed misaligned. I can get to a console and use the command line. What are the best commands to fix the display?

    Update:
    The page https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_t..._Xorg_problems looked helpful. The suggestions worked to determine that the machine is using X11 instead of Wayland. However the suggestion to use
    journalctl -e _COMM=gdm-x-session
    to determine the graphics driver found no entries. The machine has an AMD motherboard with built-in graphics, so I assume the problem has nothing to do with Nvidia.

    The machine was working with a Samsung TV for a monitor and a DVI to HDMI cable. I replaced the TV with an old Gateway monitor using a VGA cable. With that hardware change, the problem went away. What did the upgrade do to make the TV stop working? The TV is the monitor that I want to use.
