Backtrack 5 R3 GNOME Black Screen after startx
I am sure there are 100's of tuts out there explaining how to fix this. No actually I know for a fact there are, because I have tried nearly all of them..
I have an ATI Radeon HD 5700, 8.892.0.0(Driver version)
Trying to run a Live CD install with BT5R3 GNOME.
I have already used this OS on VM, so that may or may not be a problem, that's why I am here.
This is pretty much how it goes,
I boot up, get to the tab screen, press it, (have tried changing the line by adding
) hit enter, does the loading it should, then either shuts off my keyboard at the bt5 screen (Failing to use the ports, apparently. I cannot remember the exact error) or it blank screens me, and does not detect my monitor anymore. (HDMI NO SIGNAL)

It is also important to point out, that I am trying to dual boot windows 7 and Backtrack 5 r3.
