    kernel panic each time I connect an external monitor (fglrx)

    Hello,
    I have a freshly installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a laptop computer with an ATI card.

    I have installed the latest ATI proprietary drivers 11-6 manually, by downloading them from the ATI website, creating .deb packages and installing them.

    Everytime I connect an external monitor, the system seems to go into kernel panic. The laptop monitor becomes black; I can see the mouse cursor, but it does not move. The external monitor also remains black.
    The system does not respond to any command, neither Alt-Ctrl-F1 nor the Elephants key.

    I have looked at /var/log/syslog and /var/log/Xorg.log*, but none of these end with an error.

    Any idea on how to proceed? I have looked in Internet, but it seems nobody is having the same problem.

    I have the same problem too. And i didn't find any solution also. One thing i can say, it's when monitor is plugged before power on the laptop, it works, but only in "mirror mode". Changing monitor settings cause system hang

    I get the same problem on my Toshiba Portege. Is there something I should do to try to diagnose the problem?

    Below is my lspci:
