Yes, how about more details? Like what does this error message say/are you getting an error message on your screen?

Start out by answering the following questions:
  1. Laptop specs (starting with make and model, CPU, RAM, graphics card, UEFI or BIOS, MBR or GPT disk, etc...)?
  2. Are you trying to dual-boot Windows?
  3. Distro you're trying to install?
  4. Installation method and how you prepared your installation medium?
  5. Exact wording of error (take a screenshot with your phone and post it as an attachment)?
Just a suggestion ...
