SystemCrash86 Posted June 22, 2011 Share Posted June 22, 2011 I have an e.system 4213 laptop with windows vista. I installed backtrack 5 via dual boot and when i log off or shutdown backtrack all i get is a blank screen or a different coloured screen (sometimes its blue) with white lines all over the place and nothing else. I looked online and i believe it turns out that i was missing a sis mirage 3 graphics driver like the type i use in my windows section. I have downloaded the drivers but i am stuck as how to install the drivers in linux. The first part of the process to install the drivers is to stop X so i enter some commands to stop X and all i get back is that it can't be done. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also in backtrack 5 my firefox is way too big for my screen making it almost impossible to use tools like nessus as some buttons don't even show up even when using "ctrl+ and ctrl -" - suggestions on how to fix this would very much be appreciated.
