Fedora 11: X Windows configuration gets messed up after reboot (X server crashing)

Hi everyone,

I recently installed Fedora 11 on my machine, the configuration of which is: Intel Core i7 920 CPU, 3 GB DDR3 SDRAM, nVidia GTX295 Graphics Card.

I initially used the default kmod-nvidia driver, but with a yum update, somehow a non-PAE kernel got installed and the kmod-nvidia driver did not get installed with it during the update for some reason. So I uninstalled the PAE kernel and associated kmod drivers, and downloaded the nVidia driver from the nVidia website. It ran just fine for a few days, and then all of a sudden, after a reboot, the X Server crashed and I had to log into the text mode, run

and do the default X configuration. Then, I re-installed kmod-nvidia, with no luck.

Sorry for being so vague about this, but I finally managed to get the CUDA driver (I need to use CUDA for my project work) to work (downloaded from http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_get.html). But after one reboot, the same problem resurfaced.

Now, I am in X Windows with a default 800x600 configuration using a generic visa driver, on a 23" monitor

I would appreciate help and advice to sort out this matter. I have been rebooting my computer all morning and trying various things to get the driver to work again.

I would be happy to furnish any details about the installed packages I have. For now, here is some information.

Thanks in advance, and someone please do reply! (SOS)
