First, i am ultra noob.
I recently installed Backtrack 5R3. While installing i used fix
xforcevesa noapic noapci nosplash irqpoll --
at grub menu.
now after i installed distro, i found my screen resolution set to 1024x768 instead of my original 1366x768.
I tried installing different drivers by different procedures available on Internet, But no luck.
my default /etc/X11/xorg.conf file on Backtrack is as follows
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
Whenever i try to install new drivers and activate it. This file changes and i obtain "screen not found" error at startx.
I also have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on same laptop and its working fine with 1366x768 resolution.
Dell XPS L501X
Intel i5 460m 2.53GHz
Intel(R) HD Graphics
Nvidia GeForce GT 420M
Any help or suggestion?
Forgot to add interesting info, Before startx, my Backtrack 5 splash screen appears in 1366x768 resolution!!
