Hey guys! I’ve been having this problem for days now. I freshly installed the latest 4.x version of Parrot Sec OS and have the latest virtual box version. I tried so many things and i just figured it out while i was on the bus, so here goes:

All i did was fresh install with GTK (the more graphical install UI) - but i believe it won’t matter which you do. Then all i did was follow enteexsoft’s last command - sudo sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run - then command line “reboot”

Works like an angel sent from heaven :slight_smile:

we silently released parrot 4.1 that fixes many compatibility problems caused by the 4.0.1 release, including a kernel update and some minor improvements

give it a try

I’m getting constant flashing screens with any install on my Dell Vostro 2520.

It’s stuck in a loop and shows a ParrotOS boot screen in between lines of code. I can’t make out exactly what is failing. Recovery mode doesn’t help. I had a screen dimming error with 3.11 but now I can’t even boot to the login page.

I’m moving back to 3.11 to see if that fixes the problem. Not going to upgrade to 4.x till the display problems are resolved.
