Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit

After a fresh install on my laptop.

Black screen on boot, no cursor, screen is off. I have to force close, then powering up for the second time the system will boot up fine.

MODEL: HP ProBook 6475b

GRAPHICS: Gallium 0.4 on AMD ARUBA (DRM 2.43.0, LLVM 3.8.0)

CPU: AMD A4-4300M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics × 2

Radeon HD 7420G

Downloaded the latest Radeon driver, however I get the following error:

pst007x@pst007x-Laptop001:~$ sudo sh amd-driver-installer-14.20-x86.x86_64.run
[sudo] password for pst007x:

This an issue with your discrete GPU, the most simple solution is try to switch your Graphics mode in BIOS to integrated.

Perhaps most appropriate is to try to build and install the fglrx catalyst drivers.
