You're going to need to provide more information. Can you restart the computer after the crash? If so, what happens?

It reboot, starts loading the fedora "F" and then goes to a black "terminal" like screen and starts listing call trace and backtrace codes... I don't know how else to explain :/

"I'm so mad" gives us nothing to go by. You may be upset, but this isn't the place to vent. Please provide us with more information. For instance, you said you were installing packages. Did it occur to you that this might be important information? What packages were these? What else did you do? If you don't know any of this, you re-install and start over with more care.

Thanks for the churlish comment there Mr. FranciscoD, and i'm sorry to vent but you have made me feel so welcomed to the Fedora Community!! If I knew what I did EXACTLY I probably would not have come here, if I am not asking my questions in a manor you prefer then please do not answer or comment. I am displeased with your arrogance but I will try to be more fastidious when posting my questions to this HELP forum.

I'm sorry you feel offended by my comment. A help forum only works when there is enough information to diagnose the issue. I really do not know how to put it. It is policy to discourage ranting, not just on our forum, on every forum. You do appear to know exactly what you did: you say you were installing a package or two and yet I see no mention of them. We're not asking how you broke your system, but surely, you'll know what you did that caused it to break, or the steps that lead up to the crash. All that info will be very useful to even get started. At the moment, no one has a clue here.
