I had that "out of sync" problem with my nVidia Corporation GeForce 7100 GS (rev a1).

What I did:

- Installed F9.
- Booted without "rhgb" on the grub kernel line
- Configured the system (fedora initial configuration)
- ctrl-alt-f1
- login as root
- init 3
- change xorg.conf, device driver to "nv" (originally detected vesa).
- # su - rodolfo (thats my daily username)
- $ startx -- -ignoreABI (started fine)
- end that gnome session
- init 5

Now, is working fine. Hope the nvidia driver come soon...
