    Default startx hangs, locks

    I downloaded and verified BT5R3-GNOME-32.iso and loaded it to a usb with unetbootin.

    It boots to the command prompt. When I type startx, the screen goes black, the Caps Lock and Scoll Lock indicators on my keyboard start flashing, and the computer is locked. I tried BT5R3-KDE-32.iso, BT5-KDE-64.iso, and BT5R3-KDE-64.iso, same result.

    I am using a Dell Vostro 3400, which has Intel HD Graphics and an i3-350 processor.

    Any suggestions?

    Well, the best suggestion is to read in the forums, if nothig of that helps you, then we can try to help, but you need to read first. There is lots of people with intel card issues...Some of them have fixed the problem, some other haven't yet. But I imagine it depends on the intel model.

    By the way, what type of Intel HD are you referring?..Model?

    have you tried getting the video driver loaded? have you searched the wiki to see if there is something with intel cards?...

    If you do not know how to do some basics things in linux, you need a little linux basics.
