    Default Graphical Problems

    Hi everyone,

    I have an "stupid" issue in my laptop and i cant fix it.

    I install Backtrack 5 with a external monitor plugged and works fine, but when i unplugged the external monitor my laptop monitor get black.. when i startup the laptop and run backtrack i get back image too.. So i only can use Backtrack with external Monitor.

    Anyone can help me with this issue?

    Ok. I try that fix and dont work either. Now when i log Backtrack without the external Monitor my screen show a mix of colours, like a problem with graphic card.. But when i plugged the external monitor, Backtrack just work fine. I have W7 too and that's no problem with my Graphic Card (Nvidia GeForce GT 520M)

    Hi Toxiside, sounds like we are on the right track, err at least troubleshooting. So we've gone to blank, to mix of colors if I understand correctly. May I ask for a bit more information on your system. Also, does the system load and display on your monitor with the liveCD/USB? Particularly what kind of video graphics are you running? ex: Dual graphics intel/radeon/geforce etc. Can you also let us know, what the output of this code shows:
    lspci | grep -i vga
    Hopefully this will tell us the type of card in your system. I'm thinking it maybe a simple problem like needing to blacklist something, or using an updated driver.
