Which Distro on Acer Aspire 5502NWXMi?

I got ATI mobility Radeon X700 with 14.1 WXGA on it.
I installed UBuntu, Mandrake, Redhat, FC5 test1.
They do not work at all.
Anyone would suggest?
Thank you.

You can check there to see if your laptop is listed and get details of what was installed on it and the amount of work it took to get that distro to work.
