ATI White Screen with fglrx ati proprietary drivers - Please Help!
That said, here's my problem:
Just loaded Hardy using the wubi installer and now hardy sits on its own hard drive inside my system. Right after the installation, I got a message to update and did so. No problems at all.
Then, I got another message, stating the there was a "restricted, proprietary driver that needed installation, Click here."
I knew at the time that my
ATI X700 Radeon card wasn't yet set up properly to take advantage of its 3D capabilities, meaning also I couldn't run cedega to play around with other windows stuff on this installation.
So, I went ahead and run the restricted driver installation.
Came back, the resolution looked cool and tighter and I logged in.
Nothing but White Screen of Death.
So, thought I, screw it, I'll reinstall the sumgun. This time, I used ENVY to install the proprietary driver for my ATI X700 card. Again, White Screen.
Second verse, same as the first: I reinstalled again. (growing edgy by this time)
This time I tried Hack # 52 from the book, Ubuntu Hacks. "Enable 3D Video Acceleration."
Again, white screen.
Something's up and I don't know what it is. Please help, or guide me to a link or something so that I don't have to reinstall yet again?

I just installed Ubuntu 8.04 and after enabling the ATI restricted driver , i got the white screen too. Here is how i solved it
After getting the white screen type simultanouesly CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE which sends you back to the login screen .
After that you go to SESSIONS and choose Failsafe GNOME.
Once you are logged in go to Applications-ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS and remove the 2 ATI PACKAGES there.
After that shutdown.
Turn it on ,and it worked for me .
Hope it works for you too.I have had a 360 ,but it got the RROD
No more XBOX, i turned PS3
I had it for months ,it still amazes me!
Never seen a bigger failure of MICROSOFT then the XBOX 360!
