If you are talking about hardware issue then I would like share some things
with you,

I have Laptop with AMD 2.0 turion processor with 1.5GB of RAM. On that few
distro works fine such as
Suse 10.2
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 8.10 but its slow down the speed of laptop.
CentOS 5.0

I have asked HP to change the Motherboard. After changing the board I am not
able run the
Ubuntu 7.10 got hanged at the start of installation.
Suse 10.3 got hanged in few mins after booting completely
Suse 11 got hanged in few mins after booting completely

So you Hardware issue may be there but chances are less.

Thanks & Regards,
