Hi everyone,

I have been using Ubuntu 10.10 for a short while now (about 1 year), trying to transition over from Win 7.

Just got a new graphics card (Gigabyte ATI HD6970) and it works well in Win 7, and when I booted into Ubuntu it seemed to be working as well, that is until I installed the restricted driver and rebooted. Now Ubuntu does not display a picture when I try and start it unless I go into the Low Graphics Boot Option from the recovery console.

My question is,

Is there a distinct problem with the Gigabyte ATI HD6970 graphics card / Restricted ATI Driver and Ubuntu?

(My build)

i7-860 Intel Quad Core
Kingston 8GB RAM
1TB WD Caviar HDD
Gigabyte ATI HD6970
Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3 (Rev 1.0)
Hytec 950Watt PSU

Thanks in advance, I really don't wanna have to go back to using Windows full time.
