Spell out your words, please.

Visit distrowatch, and look at the different options. I'd suggest you download and try several, and see which one you like the best. Ubuntu/Kubuntu would be a good starting point, but openSUSE and Mandriva have had positive 'newbie' reviews too. All a matter of opinion.

No idea, since I don't have that particular laptop. However, as was said, you can download any different distros you want, try them, and see which works best.

Chances are, the Ubuntu/Kubuntu distros will support everything right off the bat. openSUSE and Mandriva are good choices too. The only way to know is to try.
