    Well at 150x58 pixels I can't see it, also doubt any one else can.
    However let's start with some info on your graphics card. Also might be a good idea to check the forums against your card type to see if others have had problems. You may also try fix-vesa at the root prompt.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Don't PM me with questions, unless very specific. Otherwise, use the forums so everyone can potentially benefit from it.

    dont know if it helps, but whenever i used backtrack (3, or 4)
    when i ran startx i would get errors about the display

    i would have to run "X -configure" it would probe displays and create a xorg.conf.new
    then you can run startx -- -config /root/xorg.conf.new

    The how to has a lot on this subject.

    fixvesa is your awnser.
