You will be better off looking at the BT wiki or in the BT forums.
It is likely to be a graphics driver issue, BT uses nouveau by default for Nvidia.
Whether you post here or in the BT forums, people will want more informations such as hardware, usual command outputs, BT release so they know what kernel, x64 or x32, DE chose such as KDE or Gnome etc etc
As a note, everything BT is designed to do is designed and can be done from command line, a GUI is not needed and rarely used to be honest. (as muts would say "learn the /pentest directory first then when if you feel lazy later you can startx"
