Looks like a dupe of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=159026

Can you check if the "garbage" workaround resolves this issue for you?

It seems to have been a framebuffer issue. I disabled the framebuffer and
everything went well. Thank you for everything. 
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-11-05 02:29:48 EST
does the update kernel have the same problem ?
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-11-10 14:58:11 EST
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.

This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
