    Exclamation DELL inspiron n5010 -- BackTrack 4 R1 Daul boot with Windows 7

    Hi, I have a problem configuring my Laptop's video card "Intel GMA 4500MHD 1GB" I tried to install a NVIDIA installation and an Envy installation but it won't work! here is a snapshot for my screen:



    it may look good but when I move the window it moves very badly just like if it's stuck in something !

    This is my first day in BackTrack after using Ubuntu, Ubuntu worked fine with me! sope is there anyway to install the driver "Intel GMA 4500MHD" video card into my BackTrack 4 R1 release, and by the way I am using a 64-bit machine with Intel Core i3 2.28 GHz and 2GB DDR3 RAM. please please help me fixing my problem and get the screen running perfectly as it should be.

    PS: When I was installing BackTrack 4 R1 I had to type "fixvesa" before typing "startx" to prevent getting the fatal server error "No screens found", if this matters.

    Thanks, I hope you help me configuring my Video Card correctly

    Try downloading the Linux Nvidia driver from the Nvidia website and installing it, or you can also install it from the repos. You didnt mention how you tried to install it before or what the problem was so I cant be more specific. Google or search the forums for more details.
