I am trying to install ATI Graphics Driver from the last one week . I tried almost every possible option available online. But still no success with installation. I am using Dell Inspiron 3521 laptop. The graphic Card is of series 87xx .

Whenever i install driver . It gaves me error

[Error] Kernel Module : Failed to build fglrx-13.251 with DKMS
[Error] Kernel Module : Removing fglrx-13.251 from DKMS

DKMS Part of Installation Failed.

i also tried to install using this patch


Sometimes i was able to install them . But Everything disappears after login or sometimes it goes to Low Graphics Mode.

Ram : 4 GB
Hard Disk : 500GB
Graphics Cards: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4000 HD, ATI Readon HD 87XX Series.
