    Default Lenovo X200 and intel x4500 graphics card

    Hi everyone,
    I managed to install backtrack 4 from USB key to my Lenovo x200 with no drama.
    I am now going through tweaking it to getting the display the way i like it. but the issue is that my screen in backtrack can not go any larger than 1024x768 but my screen in windows can actually handle 1280x800 which is the way i like it.
    I figured there had to be an issue with possibly the driver, i have searched these forums for no anvil and google, trying to figure out how to adjust the screen i ran fix-vesa which eliminated two resolution that when i ran them would make my screen go blank.
    I also tried to manually edit the xorg.conf file but got lost.

    Is someone able to shed some light. please be gentle.

    check this out:
    Installing Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) and Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) on a ThinkPad X200 - ThinkWiki

    i'm not saying it'll work, mind you. i'm just saying check it out.
    also, keep in mind that while BT4 is based on Ubuntu... Ubuntu it ain't. If this puts you into a no-boot scenario...it's just another friggin' growth opportunity.

    good luck with that!

    brother,
    thanks for that i will look into it. I figured that not everything will work with BT4 but it is worth a try.
