well i tried just unlocking the ones on ubuntu(hardy) but no good,
it just switched my monitor off after it finished booting,
then i tried the official ones from ATI, but no luck, they wont even install,
and i just tried EnvyNG but again, no good, does the same as the first option...

does anyone know what i can do? im a fresh use to linux all together, being a windows user all my life im used to just have the software supplied with the hardware...

any ideas?

when the monitor goes black, it still plays the sound of the login screen, so i know its all working apart from the video card?
