Hello all, here's my problem:

- Installed OpenSUSE 13.1 (IceWM > Cinnamon + GDM), and installed every update and dup with zypper
- Upgraded to 3.13 Kernel. I don't remember the exact version, but the latest from the stable repo
- Installed ATI Propietary Drivers (latest beta 14.3 V1.0) from the rpm

- After the first reboot, the screen got corrupted, even the Terminal screen (Ctrl+Alt+F1)


After that:

- Uninstalled Installed ATI Propietary Drivers with /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh (screen go back to normality)
- Downgraded to Kernel 3.11
- Installed ATI Propietary Drivers (latest beta 14.3 V1.0)

- After the first reboot, the screen got corrupted, even the Terminal screen (Ctrl+Alt+F1)



And, for the last time:

- Uninstalled Installed ATI Propietary Drivers with /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh (screen go back to normality)
- Installed ATI Propietary Drivers with 1 Click Install

- After the first reboot, the screen got corrupted, even the Terminal screen (Ctrl+Alt+F1)

This is my laptop:

- Toshiba Satellite L845-SP4105LA
- CPU: Core i7 i7-3632QM
- AMD Radeon HD7670M 1GB
- Chipset Mobile Intel HM76 Express
- 14" 1366 x 768

- Dual boot, EFI mode. Windows 8.1 x64

I saw that other user had this same problem, with the same GPU:
