try disabling compiz on bootup. I know I have had trouble with ATI and compiz. MEtacity might work better.

EDIT: once you log in you can open a terminal with alt-f2. from there you are still blind of course, so type in: $metacity --replace

of course, the $ is not typed.

check my edit. I dont know why DVI would not work properly, try using the other port on the gfx card. That has worked for me sometimes.

EDIT: Which ATI driver are you using?

After the screen goes black you have succesfully logged in. alt-f2 brings up a terminal. I know you cant see the terminal, but type metacity --replace. if that does not work you should try a different ATI driver. there are such drivers as: fglrx and radeonhd. try a different driver if that does not work.

for that card, yes. the newer cards supposedly benefit from the radeonhd driver more. try that, if that doesn't work im not sure how to help you.

Radeonhd only support 2D and no Crossfire, meaning only "half" your card will work and with only basic 2D functionality. Use the latest fglrx version instead. How are you installing the drivers?

Installing the "ATI way" usually works best.
