The problem is whenever I update xorg, it breaks my whole system. I get a black screen at the login screen.

I own a Dell Inspiron N4110 with a ATI Radeon 6630M graphics card. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and I installed fglrx because my laptop tends to overheat. Everything works now except when I update xorg.

Is there a fix for this or do I just ignore the xorg updates? Thanks!

I have a Sony Vaio VPCCA with that graphics card. I followed this Spanish language tutorial and it works.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. This is especially so since the tutorial itself is in Spanish rather than English. – Eliah Kagan Jun 15 '12 at 8:50
