    Question ATI Video driver trouble.. [help reinstall]

    Hello.
    I had this issue for a wile now, but i didnt bring it up since it wasnt much trouble for me, but now.. Ok, so when i installed ubuntu it installed me "ATI Accelerated graphix driver" thingy.. since i was a n00b i didnt now that it was a driver for a videocard itself.. i thot that it was some sort of "basic" driver, so i decided to install the one from ati website. i did, and then after restart the screen was plain white. One of my buds told me how to fix the problem, he removed the driver i got from ati's website, and helped me to disable the "ATI Accelerated graphix driver" thingy. So now i cant play most games i have. if i enable it, i would get the white screen on startup problem. is there any way to completely remove the driver from the system, and then install the fresh copy of it?

    I've had very good luck using EnvyNG to install ATI drivers. I have a fairly new card (HD 3850) . . . Envy worked great.
