Help please! I had blank screen when I booted the F18 kernels but still OK with F17 kernel after upgrade.

I followed DavidA instructions above but now I get blank screen with the F17 kernel as well and I want to reverse the changes -please could someone advise me what commands I need to do this?

I have fedupped to f18 from 17 and the 2 latest kernels blank screen + ctr+Alt+F2 does not give me a screen -when I decrypt the hard drive blind & wait for HD activity to cease & put in my login & pw it looks likes it's working from the HD activity, but no screen.

When I boot from kernel 3.6.11-1fc17.i686.PAE I get no problems & system works very nicely, so I am wondering what changed in the kernel and can it be fixed?

this is a Toshiba sattelite P20 with NVIDIA Geforce FXGo5600

I have read some post about NVIDIA drivers problem and some additional parameters to set in Grub, but it sounded complicated for every boot.

I hope it can be fixed in a future kernel, can it?

Meanwhile, has anyone any suggestions how I can get a screen with the newest kernel?
