    Default How to use a monitor using the DVI adapter of a laptop?

    Hi,

    I have Backtrack 4 Final Release1. I have correctly installed the drivers for my Ati Mobility Radeon 4400, and I want to know how to connect the monitor to my laptop.

    Thank you

    Plug it in and use the keyboard to switch output modes. Your OS and/or drivers shouldn't matter.

    Hi,

    the problem is that the blue buttons don´t work on my laptop with Backtrack.

    The laptop is a Samsung R522. Should I select any particular keyboard layout?

    Thank you.

    Try changing your video mode using Fn + <monitorkey> before you startx.
