Hi,

 

I'm trying to install the Catalyst drivers for Radeon HD 6670 on my Linux Debian Jessie machine, however when I restart the computer aftre installing them my screen goes blue. I am guessing that this means the resolution is too high.

 

I can open a virtual terminal by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F1, and the resolution isnt too high there so I can use that to fix it. I used that to uninstall the drivers.

 

At the moment I'm running the system without drivers, however I want to play some games soon and I think I will need them for that.

 

If anyone can help me, it will be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I currently have a monitor by a company called "Venturer". I have no idea where i got it from or what model is, all I know is that it's resolution is 1024x768x75 . Recently however I ran into another problem. I installed the drivers again and fiddled around with some settings, however the screen is still blue and this time I can't even open the Terminal to uninstall it.

To reach terminal you can boot in multi-user level (init 3), without X.

However, could you show Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf before uninstalling fglrx?

May be, they will be useful.
