i upgraded to jaunty the other day, and now X freezes.

it will launch, but it's a distorted image with no legible characters. trying to fix x in recovery mode doesn't work.
neither does aticonfig --initial
or reconfiguring xorg.conf with the phigh reconfigure thing.

Specs:
ATI Radeon 2400 hd pro
AMD athlon 64 3800+ single core
500GB hard drive
2GB RAM
ubuntu 2.6.28

any ideas? is there an update that i may be unaware of?
