    Also don't be afraid to search for yourself both here on the forums and google.
    It might also be a good idea to post some info about your setup and the tutorial/s that you followed. There are lots of them so how are we to know.

    Didn't mention it previously so my apologies, but why not upgrade to BT4 since it's the lastest, greatest, etc. ?

    Ok, so i have spent all day googling and reading and i cant find a solution to the problem any where

    When running startx i get the following error

    "Failed to initialize GLX extensions - compatible NVIDIA drivers not found"

    Laptop - Fujitsu Seimens Amilo li1705 with a VIAChrome9 HCIGP WDDM graphics card

    sure there are lots of topics out there with similar problems but there are no solutions.

    by the way i also have tried bt4 and have exactly the same problem so i am guessing it might be a hardware issue with my graphics card.

    you have a proprietary video card with non-free drivers, they are not typically included in live distros.

    recommendations:
    use a different pc for your testing
    learn how to install the nvidia drivers prior to starting x
