Non-linux compatible laptops..?


Hey guys!

I'm experiencing some weird errors with my laptops..
Laptops:
Shg Note9000
LG siemens LW70

Error:
on the shg, when trying to run Fedora(3), Mandrake(10)
or Gentoo.
it installs, but then hangs during boot up.
I dont even get far enough to see whats wrong.
It came with WinXP pro, I installed win2k for personal reason but that gave me a hideous blue-screen wich i couldnt fix my self.. 2months in repairs (yay) it came back with a new hdd~ (they had no idea what was wrong)

I tried running knoppix, It gets to the point
"creating folders on ramdisk" and then gives me some a huge bunch of errors.. a bunch of numbers here and there and one text.. "13xxxkb lost" (x being a number that i cant remember <_<;

this error occurs on the LG too.. (the LG isnt mine so im not allowed to install anything so I dunno about the other dists :| the mandrake,fedora,gentoo discs arent broken.. they work just fine on my pals Desktop =(

whats wrong with this? (im suspecting the bios but i cant find anything helpful there >_<) Help please

(btw, my laptop is still in england for repairs.. a fan broke >_<
its been there for two months now.. makes me wonder..
my mp3 was sent there last year for repairs.. its still there..
ive mailed them and asked where it is, and they just give me an auto-reply.. (creative) i really hope they dont do the same with my laptop O_o)

So I cant run any commands right now.. all I know is that it freeze before even starting to boot..
