Hi, I see you posted this from windows 7, does this issue affect linux? If yes which distro? If you want help with Windows, you're in the wrong place.
Mesa 7.11 might adress the issue you're having : it brings a part of GLSL 1.30 with it.

Please use punctuation and separate sentences, it will be a lot easier to read.

Which graphics card do you have in your laptop? For SM 3.0 you need at least a NVidia Geforce 6xxx (or higher), ATI/AMD X1xxx (or higher) or Intel G35 (or higher). You also need the latest drivers in case of the Intel models.
