According to the manual http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/csbus/100_Series/SG100D08_QSG.pdf
there is only one light per port. Does the manual I linked to match your product?
Is your laptop older and your old switch 10/100? This is an unmanaged 10/100/1000 switch and you may have an auto negotiation problem on the laptop. You could try hard coding speed and duplex on the laptop.
