    Default Video Card Issue

    Here is the basic specs of my new laptop

    Studio XPS 16 Notebook
    9-cell Battery
    High Definition Audio 2.0 with SRS Premium Sound
    8X DVD+/-RW Slot Load Drive
    Dell Wireless 5620 mobile broadband built-in mini-card, Sprint
    8GB, DDR3, 1333MHz 2 Dimm
    Intel Core i7-840QM (1.86-3.2Ghz, 8M/8 threads)
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 - 1GB
    15.6 inch Wide Screen 16:9 900p HD+ WLED LCD, W/2.0 MP, XPS 1645
    S and P Drop-in-Box Marcom forDHS Notebooks
    Windows 7 Label
    256GB Dell High Performance Solid State Hard Drive, 2.5MM
    Facial Recognition
    Dell Webcam Central v1.4
    Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English
    Dell Wireless 370 Bluetooth Module (2.1+EDR)
    Intel WiFi Link 5300 802.11AGN Half Mini Card
    Integrated 10/100 Network Card

    I am unable to get Backtrack 4 R2 to boot this machine. It tries and gets to a point where it says no copatible video found.

    I can only assume that it is due to this here
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 - 1GB

    Is there a work around for this or a driver I can get installed before booting?

    Thanks.

    Yes, install the ATI driver, that should work.

    Thank you for your reply.
    How do I go about getting the driver installed when the Disk will not boot to get it installed?

    Is there a way to edit the ISO (Backtrack) to dump the ATI driver in then burn new disk?

    Thanks for your time and help with this.

    Yes see the customize BT.iso guide on the wiki.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    if booting means gettin` the dragon thing and a pop-up asking to install not recognized stuff you are pretty much stuck....being root is quite different
    If anything can go wrong, it will....

    Easy solution:

    Type Fixvesa once you have entered your credentials.
    Then type Startx.

    I'm currently trying to get my ATI radeon card installed, but proving unsuccessful. Comes up saying Display cannot be found, and the only way it recognizes my monitor is if I perform the Fixvesa command. I'm assuming it's something to do with the driver not knowing where the monitor is, but haven't figured out a way to manually edit the file to make it work.

    Let me know how you get on, if you can get your ATI card working before me, let me know as I own a Dell Studio XPS 1647 model with the same 5730 Radeon card as what you have.

    Cheers,


    Andy.
