Ok so getting fairly annoyed with windows 7 now and have been gradually turning to the darkside with ubuntu on nearly all my machines now, so tonight it was more fed up than usual with my main PC and decided to install Ubuntu 10.04LTS on it.
Its an AMD64 Dual core X7750, 4gb mem, soundblaster audigy, AMD crossfire motherboard and an ATi HD4650 graphics card.
So install 10.04 and it works fine, start setting up the sound and get it balance just right. the system tells me that in order for my graphics card to run properly it will need propriety drivers and lists the ATi ones (written by them?).
I set it about its duties and then restarted when it was done, it now wont boot up past the ubuntu logo with the 5 dots (all red quite quickly) and the graphics appear to have changed a little (almost like it was lower resolution!).
So I went in via recovery mode and did some updates as it was a fresh install to see if that might help.
hour updating, restart and same thing.
So question is what command will I need to impose to go back to normal drivers and what other driver options are available?
I did a bit of a search on here but it would appear everyones problem is slightly different and while its a toss up between the open source and ATi direct drivers, I dont even know how to get back to where I was before the ATi install to try something else?
