I am a newbie when it comes to linux. I am taking a class this semester that requires that I use the operating system. I installed Fedora 20 on my hard drive. It seems to freeze and then prints out an error message saying

GPU Lockup - switching to software fbcon.

I figure that I have to update the graphics driver. Can someone tell me how to do update properly using akmod.

Have you looked at the many other questions here that address installing graphics drivers? If you have problems not addressed already, what are they?

This is my second post here. I've looked at other websites for similar issues. A lot of the stuff I don't the code and stuff....I just need to talk to someone about it that understands that i'm not a professional coder.
