I´m trying to run Backtrack 5 R3 from the live CD (x32, GNOME), in my Toshiba Satellite L505 with Intel HD graphics. But after i run "startx" the screen goes blank and the Caps Lock key starts blinking.
I've tried the same CD in another laptop and that problem doesn't occur.
Is there anyway i can solve this?
Thanks in advance!
Thought this was my problems solution here, nope same thing for me with ATI radeon and didnt help.
Anyways I was able to take care of the heat buy shutting off the cpu thrasher monkey they put in the bios...
Just telling you in case you have the same issue...
Now that you are good and frustrated cause I haven't answered your question
I'll try to point you in the right direction.
The L505D and others similar in that time frame of production had a jacked half ass ACPI
Its a boot issue and more than I want to get into but if you hit the tab button as you boot into the menu'
you could try adding these one at a time on about the second line up from the bottom.
this first I think specifically addressed your issue NOMODESET if that doesn't work then try NOAPIC
and then NOLAPIC and last ACPI=OFF, the reason I say last is because its the one that can potentially fix your problem but may cause others.
If one or a combination work you need to remember to set them in your grub otherwise you'll need to keep redoing them.
And just because I'm tired I leave you a link to my best friend to put you on the right path...
