So, I reinstalled mint again ... and I need help how to make my drivers to work fine & stable ... :oops:

On the page you downloaded the driver from, they have a link to "Installer Instructions" It's a step by step procedure.

My guess is that xorg isn't configured properly.

can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf here?

well, if you want to see (not modify), them open the "terminal" and type or paste this in:
Code: Select all
gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

if you want to actually edit the file:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

you will be prompted to enter your password (it doesn't show on screen)

Just copy/paste the contents of it here (use code tags)


EDIT
You can try these install instructions, they have always worked for me. (manual install of ATi's drivers from the ATi site anyway)
