    Default HP Dm4 2191us Black Screen

    Hello all,
    I just bought a hp dm4 2191us notebook. very nice laptop, and light. it's a 64bit laptop. I download the 64bit KDE one. I burn the iso to the usb and started it up. The splash menu came up quick and I choice the first option.
    Backtrack Text - default boot text mode.

    I started seeing all the letters go up quick but then it went all black. The usb light keep flashing, and notice it stopped after a while. I hit enter and couple times to see if something would come up. Well since I been playing with backtrack for a month I remember every time it finished loading all you had to do is type startx. Well sure enough I did that and the loading window came up and went right into the backtrack program. I seen the whole desktop like normal.

    Now my question is will it always do that with the black screen is that a bug in backtrack? if I load that on a dual boot will i get the same black screen all the time?

    the adapter tpye
    Intel(R) HD graphics Family Driver Version

    Any kind of help would be great. thanks!

    Try to edit grub and add "i915.modeset=1" on the same line of "vga=792". See if that solves the issue.
