'Laptop' is a generic term.

Some laptops are built with hardware that is supported by the distribution that you are attempting to install, and some laptops are not supported by the distribution that you are attempting to install... or maybe, if you have a weird laptop, nothing will run on it except Windows XP.<g>

The same is true for desktop machines, but with laptops, it is *much* more difficult (or impossible) to swap in hardware that is compatible with the distribution you are attempting to install.

Did you do some Googling, to see if your specific laptop is compatible?
