I bought a dell 3537-157813 laptop with amd radeon 8850m. I installed for it the latest amd catalyst driver from amd.com but after reboot the computer ive got black screen with only visible my cursor... after I reinstalled my system and used the closed driver in the software sources but i got the same result (black screen with my cursor)

Tried ubuntu: 12.04 and 13.10 both same result Amd catalyst: 13.11

Anyone does any idea? Or maybe faced with same issue in amd 8000 series? black screen after install official closed amd graphich driver on ra ati 8850m closed driver dell
