My System Specs

Default

Yes the ATI drivers are tricky I used to always have problems but usually fix it in the xorg.conf
my older xorg.conf looked like this mind you this was back in 2008 and there was allot in here that I didn't need also it was for my 3870 the bolded line is usually what helped me out after I tried to install the driver
. I would have to access the xorg.config using vim I believe because my desktop wouldn't load and of course your xorg.conf would be allot different then mine but this kind of gives you an idea of what you mostlikely need to change, just make sure that you back up your original xorgconf .
but I suggest going to linuxquestions.org they always answered all of my questions I usually would get reply's within minutes
