Screen Resolution dropped since last boot - Fedora 10
I'm using an eMachines T3406 running Fedora 10. I keep it updated, and am using Desktop Effects. I shutdown the computer as normally required, and booted it up, to find my screen resolution back down to 1024x768, unable to go higher. I've also been having this problem where I get blocks of extra pixels within text as I'm scrolling through windows. If I highlight the text, then it will go away. I'm new to the whole Linux scene, so I don't know the first place to look on how to repair my graphics drivers.

the part you are missing is going into your computer's bios to change the boot sequence to CD/DVD first so that it would read the dvd. The current setting is probably network since you are seeing the PXE failure
In XP right clcik on Desktop and go to properties. Go to the last tab of the display properties and set the screen resolution to a higher resolution. Make sure you have the latest video drivers installed.
In Vista Right click on the desktop and go to Personalize and change the screen resolution.
Try this out, Power on your PC, as you are doing this, Keep tapping the F8 key, you should see the options available for booting there, so just select normal, if it happens again, repeat the same process and select last known good configuration. If again it goes into safemode, then do this, : After booting in safemode, right click on your harddisk, then go to properties, then select Tools, then you'll see error checking, just click on Check now, then it will prompt you that it will do it at the next system restart,
If you don't hear anything on bootup then it is most likely the power supply and you can purchase one from your local Best Buy Comp USA type store. It is very easy to replace if you have repair/troubleshooting skills. I can elaborate if you want to give it a try but it sounds like the power supply that is bad.
You have two choices: 1) Insert your e-machine system disk and boot from it. It should ask you if you want to install Windows or repair it. Choose R for repair. Then when you get the black screen with white writing, choose your windows installation (usually #1) and then press enter when prompted for a password. When you get the c: prompt, type chkdsk /r This might fix it. If not, then try the process again and don't choose "r" but continue through the screen when it asks you to accept the Microsoft agreement by pressing F8. Then on the next screen choose to repair the existing version of Windows. It will reinstall the system files and may actually fix your problem.
