Black screen when I start gnome


I install Fedora 19 KDE Desktop on my computer, I have been searching for other desktop enviroments so I install gnome but the problem is when I try to log with Gnome 3.8 the screen turns black like if was off I was trying to fix with xrandr because i think it was a resolution problem but when I use xrandr It send a message saying 'Can't open display.'
Help me please, Im new with this stuff.

did kde run properly in your machine?
If that is so, select GNOME as the default session during login. DO NOT LOGIN. Instead use go to a terminal and login from there. From there restart the X.
