I just downloaded backtrack, put it on my flash drive did all that and got the program running. However the screen is really really dark I can barely read anything. I tried changing the background to white that didn't help. After 5 minutes of squinting I had to boot back into Vista it was hurting too much. I don't know what to do. I don't know if I could type commands because I can barely see anything. My keyboard buttons for adjusting the brightness don't work or are already at full power. I'm running an Acer emachine e620. Thanks for any help.
