I'm running ubuntu 11.10 and I installed the Ati driver from the oficial page. When i reboot, the grub and the splash screen are working (at lower resolution) but instead of the login screen, it shows "input not supported" message. If I use "Ctrl+Alt+ keypad +" I can see my login screen at 640x480 resolution and login.

I don't know how to make login screen displays 1440x900@60, that is the resolution set on my session.

I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 with ati hd4200 video card, a monitor acer aL1916w that supports the resolution 1440x900.

I have an amd Quad core processor. Check your bios. See if it is compatible with Linux. My older 2010 emachines Celeron 450 was compatible ; it mentions bios updates in the support page on the web. There it said for Linux and windows bios.

Your bio might say Linux or Linux only , on the update , on the web support page. You cannot update these anyway, the computer will not let you.
