    Follow the instructions in the link below to remove the ATI drivers and replace them with the open source drivers. That will at least give you a working desktop:

    http://https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver
    Ubuntu 16.10 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
