HOW are you "When I try to install fedora 16 in it"
please expand on just what you are doing ?

1) reformat the laptop to 100% remove windows - including the hidden "recovery" partition
-- use gparted live cd
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
2) pop in the fedora 16 iso that you burned and an IMAGE and not as a data disk
3) fallow the on screen instructions
--- or ----
Read the install guide
