A black screen when Fedora 20 boots is not so unusual.

Perhaps the GUI cannot understand your graphics card.

Perhaps there's not enough free memory for the GUI. How much RAM is in the machine.

Don't try to login until the GUI starts otherwise you will interrupt the GUI starting.

Has the system had any updates since you installed it?

If you press <ctrl>-<alt>-<F2> does it give you a text terminal?

Logging into those prompts puts you into a terminal. Use the terminal to check your log files, see if anything had a problem starting.

You could also 'sudo /sbin/reboot' and see if it will reboot into a GUI for you.

Try less /var/log/Xorg.0.log and look for lines beginning with (EE), if that's not what the file's called, cd /var/log ; ls to list files and figure out what file it is.
