What version and arch of Fedora are you trying to install (F8 64bit)? What(specifically) is your hardware?

All the hardware should work. Make sure that you are installing the x86 (i386) version. Also, why are you going with Fedora 7 when the latest is Fedora 9? It's generally better to install the latest the version of the big distros. Go with Fedora 9 if you can.

have you tried booting from the CD/DVD or just inserted the CD/DVD in Windows?

Put the CD in your CD-ROM, restart your computer and boot from CD ROM. It may work that way!

It could be a hardware issue, but yes, as chrim01 indicated, we need to know what video card it is running first. Generally it should be OK, but otherwise a driver might be required. It also could be the screen that doesn't support the resolution you're trying to select, or the other way around, the video card doesn't support it.
