Im trying to install an ATI driver for my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730, I have an ASUS N61jq. I tried catalyst 13.2 and 13.11 beta, but both of them causes black screen on the login screen, I can hear the Ubuntu login screen sound. The xorg driver makes my notebook heat too much and the fan is always too noisy, I'm afraid of burning something.

I had Ubuntu 12.04 with and an older ATI driver that work nicely, but the AMD site does not have the older catalyst for download. I used 12.xx

Does someone managed to solve this issue? Or have link for older Ubuntu catalysts?

I presume the radeon (free drivers that comes with each installation) works fine? –  Braiam Feb 17 at 23:36
