Probably there was a kernel upgrade and your video driver does not work any more
depends on your card if you are using NVidia
you could use following package
kmod-nvidia-1:195.36.31.1.fc12.4.x86_64 (31 k) - rpmfusion-nonfree-updates :
This is a meta-package without payload which sole purpose is to require the
nvidia kernel module(s) for the newest kernel.
to make sure you get it together with a new kernel.
wich automaticly updates your driver for the new kernael
