We can't help you if you don't provide exactly what you tried and exactly what errors you got. Pick a distro, install it, and write down what goes wrong, then post that here. This is actually much more important and much more useful to us than the hardware information; all of that is pretty generic and if you were having hardware problems, it'd be from something way more specific than that.

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

You could try some 'LiveCDs' from 'The LiveCD List'. I would suggest 'Knoppix' first.
Post any errors or information when you have a problem.

The above links and others available from 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
