F10 a no-go post-install

Hi, tried lurking at some other threads but didn't find anything related to this prob.

I installed F10 from i686 KDE live CD. Ran SHA1SUM check and the "verify and boot" check. F10 seemed to install fine, but after getting to login screen and typing in my password, it gets to the loader screen with line growing up to the 'a' in 'Fedora' and then the comp hangs. There are a few white pixels drawn to the upper right corner of the screen near the time of the hang.

Only cold reset works after that. I tried session types: default, custom, KDE. These have the same result. With failsafe, the screen goes blank for a sec and then returns to the login screen. How to troubleshoot?

It sounds similar to a problem that I had with my laptop (nVidia 8200M chipset). I had to start Fedora in runlevel three and then get my wired network connection going. From there, I installed the nVidia drivers from the rpm-fusion repo and rebooted.

If you need specific steps on getting into runlevel three or installing the packages in text mode, let me know.
