I'm a Linux newbie.  How can I fix this in the boot process?  I tried booting 
up in level 3 but I can do gedit anywhere.  I searched and searched on how to 
see the GUI in the laptop LCD Monitor.

You probably have specified frequencies your Laptop monitor can't handle.
run system-config-display and adjust your parameters.
And please don't file such bugs as autoconf bugs, you need to select the correct
component next time, p.e. xorg-x11
