[ubuntu] Blank Screen On Startup After Install FGLRX Driver

Hello there, I'm total noob at ubuntu. I've tried my best to google my problem but I haven't found solution, so I make thread to ask someone to help me.

I have problem with FGLRX driver installation, I have tried several method to install it but none worked. When I installed FGLRX, I always got blank screen after startup. I've tried to install from System Settings > Additional Drivers then I tried post release update and normal one, but neither of them are working. I also tried to install from terminal and full console but neither of them are working as well. I use this command to install and uninstall FGLRX driver.


sudo apt-get --purge remove fglrx*

sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates

from my local forums, I got information that I need to update my kernel to PAE version using this command, obviously this is not working too.


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install linux-image-3.2.0-24-generic-pae linux-headers-3.2.0-24-generic-pae

I use Radeon HD 6790 and this is result lspci | grep VGA


01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Barts LE [AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series]

I really appreciate every single bit help you give me, thanks :)
