Looks like you are complete newbie
Press ctrl - alt- F1 and login as root.
#> init 3
#> cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_BACKUP
Hope you know to use vi - editor
#> vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Go to: Section "Screen"
Now go to the line:
Go to Subsection "Display"
change the Modes line:
Modes "1280x800" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Change the values based on your laptop screen.
Save the file. Now as root
#> init 5
wait a few seconds. you will have correct desktop.
(Remember changing your screen to a wrong values *may* damage the screen)
It would be good if you join your local LUG Linux users group.
You'll need to install ndiswrapper to make wireless work, search the forum for instructions and/or go to www.tuxmobil.org and www.linux-on-laptops.org and look for your modell. I have tried Mandrake on the same laptop, but I'm not a big fan of mandrake/mandriva so I wont comment.
LOL, why dont I ever check the dates:)
