First of all, sorry i'm not english native. I'm new at this wide, really wide linux universe, so i asked to some people wich distro i should try, and they recommended me Fedora 19.So here's what i did.
-Acer aspire one(netbook)
-Intel Atom @1.33 GHz
-Main OS: Windows 7(don't know if it is useful to know)
-RAM: 2 GB
-Fedora partition: 20 GB
-Swap area: 1 GB
I've tried to install fedora two time already, and i've gotten the same result.

The result: The OS starts and show me the login screen, i enter my user and password and everything looks just fine, right after i press the login button or the enter key it doesn't do anything. If i wait a while i get a black screen just like terminal an something appears like if it was running or starting Thanks.

Maybe take a screenshot, but if you can't navigate through your OS, that might be hard. If all fails, take a picture with a camera and upload it on an other computer. Here is some free karma to post a link to it.

try Alt+F2 then gnome-shell --replace. If Alt-F2 doesn't bring up the command box, do Ctl+Alt+F2, log in, then run DISPLAY=:0 gnome-shell --replace - that might help. While you are there, run lspci | grep VGA and let us know what it says; these problems are sometimes video device related.

Can you try uploading them to an other website, like imgur?

You may also want to try to create a new user from the command line (Press Ctrl+Alt + F4, and log in there) to see if the problem persists.

I had the same problem, but could log in, so I could Update my Fedora with Fedup ( http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedUp ).

I hope it can help you :)
