have a dell inspiron 8600 with intel mobile cpu -- need a distro that runs

hello,
i have been using linux off and on, mostly off lately, for several years now. i have a dell inspiron with a mobile cpu that has balked at ubuntu and linux mint.

don't quite understand the error message, but it goes something like, there is a feature that the cpu or mobo or bios doesn't support.

if i remember correctly it has something to do with the kernel. yeah, i need a kernel that will support the cpu(?).

any thoughts, recommendations, etc. would be appreciated.

cheers,
kdd
