    Default Graphics issue with Lenovo G555 laptop :(

    I am using Backtrack 4 R1. I encounter this issue straight from booting a Live, no matter what mode I tried (safe, framebuffer 1024x768, etc). This was attempted on a Lenovo G555. I have not had these issues with BT3 Final. I can still boot into KDE with startx. I had to issue fixvesa first. The error was:

    pci_root PNP0A08:00: address space collision host bridge window [mem 0x00cc000-0c00cffff] conflicts with video ROM [mem 0x00c0000-0x000cebff].

    I encountered a similar issue with an HP Compaq 6715b.

    Hardware specs for G555:

    AMD Athalon II Dual-Core M320 @ 2.10 GHZ
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 256 MB
    3 GB DDR2 RAM @ 400 MHZ
    AMD M880G Chipset
    HD0- 160 GB Western Digital (WD1600BEVT-24A23T0) Firmware ver 01.01A02

    HP Specs:

    AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology TL-52 / 1.6 GHz
    ATI Radeon X1250 Shared video memory
    AMD M690T Chipset
    1 GB RAM

    Any fixes/suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Larkaros

    If you have the opportunity, try BT4 Final, see if the error still occurs.

    I got the KDE to work after a fixvesa then startx. The error still appears, but it doesn't seem to be doing too much to damage anything at the moment. When I get a chance, I will download the BT4 Final Iso and try to see if that helps with anything.

    Thanks,
