It could be a number of problems. The two major problems are how much main memory you have and what type of video card is in your laptop. If you have a relatively low-spec pc you might want to try Xubuntu. Remember though, main memory on a laptop is shared with video memory. If you have for example 512 megs of main memory and your video card uses 64 megs of it you will end up with only 448 megs available to Ubuntu.
