Unhappy Fedora 16 Black Screen Installation


Hi I have a problem:

My laptop is an Acer Ferrari 4000, Sempron 3000 + Processor, AMD Turion64, 1.79Ghz. / 1Gb Ram / 100GB HD / ATI Mobility Radeon X700 128Mb / 802.11g Broadcom BCM 4318.

Currently Windows 7 and W8beta.

I want to install Fedora, but it's impossible, I get from the "install", a black screen that does not leave, but does not crash the system. I tried the "core graphics" but it is the same.

I do not know what to do with Fedora, I really would like to install it. But what other distro for me?

thanks

Are you saying that when you boot the computer with the Fedora CD/DVD in the drive, you only see a black screen?
Where did you get the Fedora download from? the Fedora site? Post the link.
Did you verify the download?

If you download the torrent from the official website and via utorrent, I verified the checksum. Then I create the bootable usb with Fedora liveusb program.
I select the option, boot from usb, leads me to a screen to "install" and "troubleshouting" I tried to install and install in basic graphics, and the result is the black screen for hours.
