Did you personally install ATI fglrx drivers? Asking because that's not done by default; you have to do it yourself. The default is NOT to install them and to use the open source drivers instead.

To check, open a terminal and type "fglrxinfo". This will tell you whether or not the fglrx drivers are installed.
