Hello,
 
Try to install centos with minimum of everything (text mode no hardware
detection), if it doesn't help trace logs. Last entry in logs before
will hangup is most important.
 
Then look on google for solution of that particular problem.

Subject: [CentOS] Problem installing Centos on laptop
 
Hi,
 
I have been trying to install Centos 4.4 on my laptop with no success.
I have just purchased a new Acer 5100 laptop with AMD Turion 64x2 
1Gig ram 120Gig HD.  
 
I have tried the 64bit and the 32 bit versions but have the same problem
with both of them.  I can do the complete install but when the computer
reboot it will hang on the hardware detection on the network right after
where it says Centos 4.4 final. I have let it sit for about 20min and it
won't pass that point.
 
I have also tried Fedora code 5 with the same results.  Ubuntu 6.06.1 64
bit installs and works fine but will lock up randomly and requires a
hard reboot.
 
If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.
 
Thanks
 
Scandog
