    Graphics Driver Problem With ATI Radeon HD 6850 Black Edition

    I just got a new graphics card for my PC. It's the ATI XFX Radeon HD 6850 Black Edition. I installed the drivers listed in the "Additional Drivers" menu but when I restarted my PC, Ubuntu would not boot. It loads until right before it gets to the login screen. I rebooted into recovery mode and booted in failsafe graphics mode. then I uninstalled the drivers for the card provided by the Ubuntu Repositories and rebooted regularly. This time I was able to login to the desktop but now the screen looks horrible because there are no drivers installed for my card. Which drivers to I need to get to make my card work properly? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    What would happen if your disk died right now?
