Your grub.conf changed? What happens when you choose the Windows® entry
in grub's boot screen.

You don't need the kernel src.rpm - the kernel-devel rpm is sufficient.
Then make sure that your graphics card is supported by the latest
NVidia.com driver and not one of the legacy models (readme file on
nvidia.com). Further there are reports by several people that the use of
the proprietary fails. As Fedora can't do much about that you will
better contact NVidia and/or search their support forum.
