    ATI drivers for a EAH2400PRO

    well i tried just unlocking the ones on ubuntu(hardy) but no good,
    it just switched my monitor off after it finished booting,
    then i tried the official ones from ATI, but no luck, they wont even install,
    and i just tried EnvyNG but again, no good, does the same as the first option...

    does anyone know what i can do? im a fresh use to linux all together, being a windows user all my life im used to just have the software supplied with the hardware...

    any ideas?

    when the monitor goes black, it still plays the sound of the login screen, so i know its all working apart from the video card?

    Your card is PCI-e16, not AGP, correct?

    Press Ctrl+Alt+F1, and that should bring you to the terminal where you can install the radeonhd driver.

    Use the two commands below and choosed radeonhd as your video driver. This should get your GUI working again after you restart, and then we can work on installing the Catlyst drivers if you want 3D accel and/or desktop effects.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    Let the system boot. When it's finished its flurry of disk activity and loaded all of your startup programs/daemons, then press Ctrl+Alt+F1

    Open a terminal.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
    sudo aticonfig --initial -f --overlay-type=Xv
    Now restart. If you get a black screen again, redo the radeonhd commands, restart and let me know. We'll take a look at your xorg.conf file then.

    well it didn't make it black, it flickered a fair bit while logging on, but otherwise, everything is the same.
