The screen blinked for a while stopped at this. I cannot do anything. Something went wrong before this because my mouse stopped working. I updated and now it won't finish the boot. How can I fix this?

Did telinit 3 and xstart, reveals: module nvidia not found, no screens found.

You need to choose older kernel from the boot list, Fedora update its kernels quite often, depending on how you installed your nvidia drivers you may need to install the nvidia driver for your kernel version, on the blinking screen you can do ctrl+alt+f2 you will get to a terminal to login and install the module, will recommend you to install drivers from with the akmod version because it will install the driver by compiling it on next boot when kernel is upgraded.
