I'm trying to install Fedora 19 many times and ended up with the same problem. I inserted the disk, chose 'Start Fedora Live', the loading bubble appears and gone after it's full, Fedora logo comes up and stay on screen for 25 mins and then it come to white screen with the message:

A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again. [Log out button]

Please help me. :(

This would often indicate a video compatibility issue, usually on older machines. There should be a boot option for "Basic Video" installation or similar, try that.

That basic mode gives me black screen more than an hour after the loading bar complete, nothing happen, just a black screen. So I decided to turn off my machine...

I heard sometimes about this issue.

You can use Fedora XFCE or something, Gnome is a little bit tricky if the graphics aren't working well.
