I installed the Catalyst Drivers for my Radeon HD 6670 Graphics card, but when I reboot it BSoD's, due to the resolution being too high. My only option is to un-install it by pressinf Ctrl+Alt+F1 and typing 'sudo amdconfig --uninstall=force'. It is annoying running without my Graphics Drivers because I have games I would like to play but they are too slow without drivers.

I have tried opening /etc/X11/xorg.conf and changing the resolution from there before I reboot, but that doesn't work. I have also tried doing 'sudo amdconfig --resolution=0,1024x768', but that doesn't work either.

I am running on Ubuntu Studio 64-bit.

1. There's no bsod in linux.

2. Even if there was, it wouldn't be triggered by the screen resolution. A kernel panic isn't either.

3. The uninstall command is different. (it's /usr/share/ati/ --force)

4. New user with the sig of a 3-year-old.

Sounds like a fake thread to me.
