Tell me about Backtrack, what release is it, where you downloaded it from... etc.

Post the output of;
Code:
uname -a
What kind of a machine you have there? And tell me did you try hard disk install?

linux root 2.6.38 #1 SMP THu Mar 17 20:52:18 EDT 2011 i686 GNU/linux

My machine is Lenovo.

I am just download the backtrack 5 ( BT5-KDE-32) form the main website.
Backtrack 4 r2 is working great, but i dont know why BT 5 is not working at all.
Even when i tried to run the backtrack 5 from the virtual box, it didnt start even, and gave black screen.
But in VMware, at least i can see something.
i tried hard disk install, but didnt gave anything

lee, this seems to be BackTrack 5 problem. Have a look here; http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...snt-start.html

And the fix as suggested in the link above (but for 64 bit, it may work for you too); http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...x-problem.html

[EDIT]
If it's OK with you, download GNOME version, it looks like that one works.

OK, then I'm out of ideas. Thought the i686 in your uname command might change.

Good luck
