You didn't check?
Solaris on x86 is not developed to be an operating system that'll work
on all x86 machines, especially not laptops.
I'll bet money that it won't work on your laptop because it was never
meant to work on your laptop.
You can check if it'll work on your hardware here:
Some cool guy on the internet keeps track of a list of laptops that
people have gotten Solaris working on.

Well, this is probably off-topic on this Linux list - The Solaris on x86
list on yahoogroups is probably the best place to look for information on
this. Also, the alt.solaris.x86 newsgroup is decent.
I'll CC: this to the Linux list to ensure thread death.
