Description of problem:
X-windows does not not work at all by default on a Laptop Averatec brand - 3220.
FC2 and FC3 appeared to at least work and boot something in graphics mode on this laptop. Something changed in the X configuration so that graphics mode and X-windows does not work at all during the install process or in run level 5.
I had to install in text mode and boot into run level 3 to get the machine up. These steps were not necessary for FC2 or FC3.
What changed in the monitor and video card probe between FC4 and FC3?

cause of the problem, and there hasn't been any response to my inquiry
to obtain additional information over a month ago.
As such, we are unable to troubleshoot this problem further.

version of Fedora Core, please file a bug report in the X.Org

centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that
become available for consideration in future updates.
