    Re: 3D games cause blank screen, then desktop

    A quick search in Applications > Add/Remove.. for "OpenGL" shows that I have "ATI binary X.Org driver" installed (or at least ticked)...

    EDIT: But it's still not working.

    Same as you have screen flashes using any 3D program, my Lap is a Dell inspiron 1521, AMD dual, ATI Mob. Radeon X1250. I was tried to many things and Google's like, drivers, reinstallings, bios modifications, and so on, without no success.
    Could we help us, thank you

    ATI's OGL drivers have a history of being bad, the only thing i can suggest is manually upgrading to the newist drivers.

    Thanks Hessiess!

    I downloaded and installed the latest driver from ATI, and even though the instructions looked scary, I worked my way through it and everything seems fine! My games all work now

    Thanks!
