Mandriva on Sony Vaio AR31m won't load

hello there.
i love linuz. received a sony vaio AR31m from work.
tried to run Mandriva 2007 live to check any incompatibility. Linux Mandriva 2007 stops at half a way of the live boot, tried several times but it won't load.
i heard it might be the Nvidia Go causing the problem.
Any solution to get that beautiful platform flying freely in my VAIO?
please help

it doesn't show any error whatsoever. as soon as it comes to half a way of loading the screen becomes black with the risult of having a dead laptop. that's all. thanks a lot!
