As it's getting way off-topic for pd-list, I would recommend to study
some linux-laptop specicific site/lists/forums, but did you try some
of the more advanced boot option? One favourite of mine is "noapic" or
(for installing) the "acpi=off" option. Also there are some
video-related option that could help. 

Laptops are strange beasts.
