Gather more information about the hardware in your laptop.
A live CD-ROM like Knoppix can help you with that.

The trick will probably be blacklisting a module in discover.

When it is a brand new laptop,
then go back to the shop and ask for laptop that has Linux support.
(Asking money back and going to another shop could also help)
