    Default IRQ enable boot problem in backtrack 3

    Every time that I try to boot backtrack 3, it freezes at enabling IRQ sharing. however, I can boot backtrack 2 perfectly. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    I use a Gateway T-1623 laptop.

    Using "bt acpi=off", I can get past my hangup. However, afterwards it takes me to a terminal where I am unable to use startx to launch KDE. Upon trying it tells me it was unable to detect any monitors.

    you might need to edit your xconf file.

    Sure enough, there lies my problem. There was a misconfiguration in xconf. Thank you for all your time archangel.amael!
