Fedora will NOT install on virtualbox

I have had this problem for a week now. I cannot for the life of me get Fedora to install on Virtualbox... it ALWAYS hangs right after the start screen where it says to Install Fedora 17. Instead of the usual input of date, time, etc. I am greeted with a black screen. This has happened with every ISO image (Live-CD, 32bit and 64-bit DVD). I have also burned all three images to DVD and still receive the same results.

I have no idea what I am doing wrong, since all I have done is create a 50 GB hard drive, gave it a name, enabled 3D acceleration and gave it 128MB video memory. I have tried to upload a screenshot of my configuration, but I also get the error "file is not defined"

I will give you the configuration of my host computer and from Virtualbox. Please help, I really want to learn linux and expand my computing skills.
