comment Second monitor detected but not receiving signal?
@slm THANK YOU!!! I had actually tried looking through the backtrack install to find out what was different (comparing xrandr output and such). Never thought to try copying over the xorg.conf. Once this was done, I was able to configure my monitors using the GUI display tool, and life was brought to the second monitor!

comment Second monitor detected but not receiving signal?
I just tried. The same monitor remains in standby, and it now shows the second screen on the working monitor instead of the first screen. The only things leading me to believe that it isn't the monitor/cable/card is a) both monitors are the same model, and b) both monitors work fine under Windows 7 and Backtrack. I am stumped. Is there a way to find exactly what driver, settings, etc. backtrack uses and copy it over?

@drs yes, and I know that the inputs are working on the monitor. The displays work fine under Windows and BT.

comment How can I configure grub (or a different bootloader) to use modifier keys?
Well currently I don't have a bootloader installed. I was thinking Kali, BackBox, or a similar distribution for pentesting. I manage a Windows domain so I'd prefer to keep Windows as my primary OS.
