Postby K4i53r on Tue Aug 11, 2009 2:27 am

Hi, I have just one problem with linux Mint Gloria x64, all hardware works out of box, but I can't install ATI drivers for my graphics card. Installation of ATI drivers 9.7 say that it's all completed succesfully, after restart don't works, just black screen appear.

Please help, Mint is great but graphics flicker...

thx

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Welcome to Mint
Reboot into "Recovery mode" and use the fix X option there (can't remember exactly what it's called)
It would be nice if you included info about your hardware in a hardware related question - which card is it?

Did the fix X option work?

It may be possible that your drivers are not supported to your laptop.
Check it out first. If you have no drivers to install on laptop then you can download it from HP website.
It is easy way to get drivers.
