    ATI Video hangs with pinstripe effect

    I don't know to much about X, as I've tended to stay away from touching it, so I don't know exactly what is causing this bug. Basically, when I do something like open a game like alien arena, or anything like that, it will either hang on load, or hang changing graphic settings. The same thing happens if i try and go to a virtual terminal, it will hang. Best way I can describe it is it looks like pinstripe effect, occasionally in colors and going horizontal, going to virtual terminal will lead to a black screen with no response. Any help would be appreciated as to what is causing this and if it is fixable. Here's my xorg.conf and what lspci shows my graphics card as being, and the Ubuntu version is 8.04 Desktop (amd64)

    ATI Technologies Inc Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955 (PCIE)

    I don't think the virtual terminal thing was part of the opengl issue, but i got it tooken care of on the irc chat

    change the last bit of the xorg.conf file to disable composite
