> connected to an HP vf52 flatpanel monitor.
> On reboot, the arrow and 'Fedora wait circle' appeared on the screen, then
> my screen went black, the arrow returned, ad infinitum.
> I initially thought the upgrade had broken the setup, so I rebooted into RL
> 3 and resetup the desktop config.  The card and monitor were detected
> correctly and the screen resolution was available and I selected it.

> Can someone else shed some light on this?
