    Same here.

    Sony VAIO VGN-FZ18E.

    Seems to be a common factor for laptops.

    [EDIT]

    Strange, but wonderful: My BT3 cd now works with my laptop. No idea why. Have changed nothing.

    I think I know whats happening. After a bit of playing around, I figured it was the boot mode I used which caused the change. So far everybody struggling with this: Try booting up in VESA mode. It might work, it might not, but it did for me.

    I installed BT3 in my removable HDD (P-ATA). It works fine but when I tried to do the same using another removable HDD (S-ATA), it cannot boot to the usual KDE but it can boot to the VESA mode. So does this indicates that BT3 got some problem with removable SATA drive? Thanks in advance!!

    Even booting with VESA mode doesn't help. Anybody any idea??????

    Boot up in text mode and then try do some manual booting ?
    If you can't make BackTrack 3 to work, then try BackTrack 2.

    And if you can't boot up in BackTrack 3 at all it's because you
    have incompatible hardware, so i suggest you install Slackware
    or use Slax and use the tools from BackTrack 3 then to make it work.

    (thats my idea)
