I installed slackware on a laptop identical to yours, without any issues.
You've quit *Linux* after 3 posts.
How many *years* have you spent with Windows?
Your posting history demonstrates how little patience you have.
As per one of your previous posts, YOU should come back in 5 years or so, when YOU are ready for Linux (Linux is already mature enough for the desktop - I've used nothing else for a decade, and have installed it dozens of times in my community, for users just like YOU. I rarely hear from those users regarding *software* issues.)
I'll still be here when you return. Have fun with your viruses, malware, unpatched and delayed-patched exploits. Watch out for other lemmings on your way to the bottom.
To summarize: The issue here is definitely not Linux.
