Hi

Hardware :
SONY VAIO VGN-385E
Intel core 2 T5300 1.73 GHz * 2, 32 Bit
Disk : 116 GB
RAM 2 GB

I have ubuntu 12.10 installed on this laptop, which is EXTREMELY SLOW. So I am willing to try Fedora LXDE.
 
I am trying to install from bootable USB which shows me the options to boot but a blank screen after that. I created this USB by 2 ways and both have same problem.

1. Using Ubuntu
2. Using Mac

How do I test the validity of bootable usb key? Can somebody suggest a way to install LXDE by removing Ubuntu ?
