Hello everyone. I removed two kernels that I had installed on my system. One kernel I uninstalled through rpm -e command and the other I manually deleted the folder from /usr/src/. Then I rebooted and entry still listed the kernel that I manually deleted (although the one I installed had disappeared). Albeit, I rebooted and everything worked fine. Then I thought of removing the entry of the deleted kernel so I installed grub customizer. Though I installed but decided against removing from the entry from grub. Then when I rebooted the problem started. Fedora startsup but hangs after the Fedora logo is loaded. What is the problem with my system? Do I have to reformat entire system? Point to note is I can login into my account from commandline when I booted into text-mode by changing the boot script from rhgb to text 3. I can also login as a root.I have seen related questions in this forum but could not find match to my problem so please don't mark it duplicate.

That is typically a graphics driver issue. Remove and reinstall / build the driver for the current kernel.

can you spevify the module? which module should I reinstall? installing new kernel will sort out this issue?
