    Post the output of this
    Code:
    sudo lspci | grep -i vga
    Post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf file here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    You have't installed ATI Driver yet. Did you try to install through Hardware Drivers? Does it throw any error message?

    fglrx driver is not working properly for your card. Check this tutorial on ATI Driver installation.
