Hi I am running 11.04 on a Dell Inspiron 530

Below I have pasted what hardware I have and some dmesg pasted info

Here is the problem:

When I log out many times I cannot seem to log back in again. It freezes without any panels appearing which I suspect is an issue with gdm?

I usually resort then to alt/print-screen and k to re-reboot and that mostly works and boots back to Unity which then works wonderfully.

I cannot understand why this does not happen when I start the pc up from scratch but only seems to happen on logout-in or sometimes reboot.

I am using only ubuntu on this pc also

Here is print out from lspci

Well I think I found the answer the wrong way though!

I had to mess around with my video driver for the ATI Radeon card so tried ...much against my wishes to install fglrx...last time I did this ..it broke. However I did sudo apt-get install fglrx and then after that had finished installing and configuring xorg etc I rebooted fine and dandy and kept on rebooting with no stalling so maybe I have fixed it after all.

Can I mark this as solved now?
