Don't worry, what you did is a very common mistake of people who are new

I am afraid that Sarge might be too old to support your card. However,
to be sure we need the full output of "lspci" and of "uname -a". (The
first command will list all your PCI hardware and the second one will
tell us which kernel you are running.) Furthermore, which kind of laptop
are you using? We need maker (Samsung?) and model.
