    Since the restricted driver didn't work for you i suggest trying envyng. Run a terminal and type
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install envyng-gtk
    After installation, an entry in Applications>System->envyng must have been added. Run it and proceed with installation of the latest driver (it's simple)

    Can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf?
