A friend of me want to install BackTrack on his old system (HP Compaq Presario Pentium D). When we type the code 'startx' we've got an error. "Input signal out of range" comes up on the screen. How can we fix that, so we can install Backtrack?

Regards

--EDIT-- The graphics card is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200

try with another display, would be the easy fix. Otherwise look into lowering the resolution for screen. –  bboyreason Oct 15 '12 at 20:54
