    Default getting BT to bring boot menu

    I am trying to getting BT4 to install with a XP partition also. Normally there is no prob's with any other distro to do this. But i know the normal install is for a full disk install and when i boot any of it from the ISO or USB into kde i can't really see whats going on. font it like super huge and half of the screen is not available. I tried using fix-splash but no use. I'm using a HP pavilion 5000, i installed it on my dell and have had no problems what so ever. So i'm guessing it's graphic's card/display but i can't even bring up the display settings without it being HUGE. the install.sh is on the desktop when i startx but it's half the size of the screen. Any help is appreciated.

    hi,

    try this...

    1. kill your current running X (like, <CTRL>+<ALT>+<Backspace>
    2. reconfigure your X11
    Code:
    Xorg -configure
    3. restart X11
    Code:
    startx
    alternative:
    1. kill running X11 instance
    2. run
    Code:
    fixvesa
    3. download latest linux driver for your graphic card and install without running X11

    thanks for the help! tried using Xorg -config but couldn't get it to bring anything up besides a blank xwindows screen, fixvesa fixed it and working on driver now! thanks! Ubuntu has spoilt me time to back to command line again... *shakes his fist at slackware3.0*
