I'm using fedora 19 x86_64, with AMD A6-3670 and default driver

My kernel version was 3.9.2-301.fc19.x86_64, and everything worked well

I updated my kernel to 3.9.4-300.fc19, and the screen's resolution can't be higher than 1280*1024.

Could cnyone give some suggestions?

The first thing you could try is to reboot in the previous kernel (the one which used to work), by selecting it at the bootloader menu.

If that fixes your issue, then congratulations, you found a regression in the newer kernel, go report it quickly! :)

If that still doesn't work, then something else has changed and it's not a kernel problem.

You will find more informations in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Bochecha - Falling back fixed my issue therefore my X/rendering issues must be related to the version 3.9.9 kernel.

My mobo is an Intel D2550MUD2 (Mini-ITX "Cedar Trail" aka "CedarView" with Intel NM10 Express chipset and Intel GMA 3650 video). During installation, F19 using kernel.x86_64 3.9.5-301.fc19 successfully detected my graphics card and Acer S211HL monitor (1920x1080 22") capabilities automatically. My video driver is xorg-x11-drv-intel.x86_64 2.21.8-1.fc19.

Unfortunately, my recent upgrade to kernel 3.9.9 lost my my automatically detected video. I get to a login prompt window but the screen elements containing a user list etc. are never rendered. Even the X-Windows/XFCE keyboard seems out of order (E.g. Ctrl-Alt-F1). Fortunately, power off led to a graceful shutdown. Falling back to 3.9.5 (as I type this note) worked for my situation.

BTW, I tried the F19 default download ("Download now! ..... 951MB, ISO image for 64-bit PCs " - seems to be Gnome-based) on this same hardware with the 3.9.5 kernel. Video auto-detection failed. Switching to XFCE proved to be the best backup plan. Maybe this one is a Gnome 2 issue?
