Welcome to LinuxQuestions!

You probably have an nVidia Optimus setup here. You may be able to select the primary graphics controller in the BIOS. Seconldy Guide for installing backtrack3 with Optimus Technology might get you started.

Hope this helps you out and I would be interested to see if you get it working (I too have Optimus technology, but I disabled the Intel HD Graphics).
