    Ubuntu GUI Problem - PLZ HELP


    My System specifications are:
    Dual Boot Windows XP Home and Ubuntu (the latest version can't remember the exact number)
    CPU: INTEL p4 3.2 Mhz
    RAM: 1024 MB
    Hard Disk: 250 Gb
    Graphics Card: ATI Radeon X700 Pro

    I'm a newbie and i just installed Ubuntu onto my PC however i have a gui problem everytime i boot it up to log in it gives and error along the lines of fatal server error no screen found

    i had a look at the log file and her is the section with the EE part that might be of interest:

    Code:
    (II)Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
    (II)ATI: Candidate "Device" section "ATI Technologies,  INc. RAdeon X700 Pro (V410)".
    (II) ATI: Unshard VGA not probed
    (II) ATI: Unshared 8514/A not probed.
    (II) ATI: Unshared MAch64 at PIO base 0x02EC not probed
    (WW) ATI: PCI Mach64 in slot 1:0:0 could not be dtetected!
    (WW) ATI: PCI MAch64 in slot 1:0:1 will not be enabled
    because it conflicts with another non-video PCO device
    (EE) No devices detected.

    So does any one have any idea what i can do to fix it (if u need more info just tell me what and i'll post it up!) or should i just uninstall the whole thing and stick with windows

    Oh and there were a couple of other warning near the top of the log one was

    Code:
    (WW) Open APM failed(/dev/apm_bios)(No such file of directory)
    And the other had to do with the fonts i'll post it up if it is relevant

    I appreciate any trying to help as you can tell i have no clue
