Description of problem:
I am trying to install linux on my laptop compaq presario 2820EA. All work 
fine, only my video is bad, during installation all ok, also Xconfigurator 
find my card, but when start X, a lot of vertical bars (transparent) make 
fonts and icons unreadable (delete the font and move up or down the icon)...

I tried also to use the VESA driver (with ATI Radeon 7500 Mobility 7500) and 
it gives me an almost clean screen, but without 2D/3D acceleration. But this 
is not the solution; the caracters are not clean.

I am sending the files /etc/X11/XF86Config and /var/log/XFree86.0.log files
for the Radeon driver.

Please upgrade to Fedora Core 2 or later, and if this issue turns
out to still be reproduceable, please file a bug report in the
X.Org bugzilla located at in the
"xorg" component.

Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes
that become available for consideration in future updates.
