I think it might have something to do with a nofb?

Try adding vga=771 as a boot option. I have the same laptop, and I have had to use that on a few distros or else the screen would go blank at startup. Although, I haven't had any trouble with Suse 9.2. If that doesn't work, you can also add nofb as a boot option. I have installed several distros on this laptop and so far Slamd64 is the fastest running. I'm not sure exactly why; but, it is distinctively faster. I am about to install FC4 and see how that runs. Suse seems to run very slow for me on this laptop. I hope that helps you.
