Hello,

You'll have to give some more information. First how you installed nvidia drivers and second what errors is throwing xorg in startup to not being able to boot. You can use the next command in console and post/attach the output:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | egrep "[E|W]{2}"

You can store it to a file this way (the last part is the path to the file):
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | egrep "[E|W]{2} > /tmp/xorg_errors.txt

Also you might found aditional configuration steps here:

hi again.
I posted a day or two ago about my problems with trying to boot Fedora
core 13 on a Dell vostro 3500.  With help from this mailing list i
managed to get the system installed.

I tried to set my laptop to use a external monitor as well (dell), and
had a very fuzzy output on the second (external) monitor. I installed
nvidia-settings which asked me to install nvidia-config. Once i ran the
nvidia.config everything went downhill from there. Now i cannot even
boot my system (well i can get it to boot in single mode but thats about
it).
I have tried running Xorg -configure to generate a new xconfig.con file
but nothing seems to be working. My laptop still gets stuck while
booting, unless i use  single mode.  I am kinda sure that its a problem
with the nvidia drivers but have no idea on what to do next.

I am most grateful for any suggestions.
regards
khan
