Angry New GPU installed, Compiz loading everything blank


Hello world!
Im having trouble with my computer. I have just recently installed an ATI 1650X PRO and got all the new drivers for it. Upon reboot it ran fine compiz was running faster i was happy. Now after about 3 days of having the card installed and 9 boots later the system now boots a gnome session that will flicker the backround image and my dashboard then a bit beffore compiz displays it's splash it goes all blank. I can rotate this blank(white) cube and view transmission in it's white texturless glory hovering over the cube as it should - the coulour. THe cube also lags. Im assuming it's either the new card, however it was running fine at first, or compiz. I have reinstalled gnome to no effect. I am on the same system right now only loaded in a fresh KDE environment that is running fine (other then it being KDE)
Thanks for any help

*Update* I have tested to see if the drivers are honky dory and they aren't working properly. GLtron is a lagorama fest... how does one fix his drivers VIA KDE? Oh and Gnome doesent work in failsafe mode

What's wrong with running KDE? KDE is working and Gnome is well....

The same way you would via Gnome, by editing your /etc/xorg.conf file.

You could see if there is a solution here: http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/Troubl...3c3a8e2606f9b4

KDE...eww. Well actually im just a big baby, too lazy to
learn KDE. I dont really like the K bar and it feel's too windows'e. One of the reasons i usae gnome is to distance myself as much as i can from windows in order to discourage my brothe4r from using my partition and to reek jealousy in my winedow$ buddies :P.
Well thanks a bunch i'll go have a peak... however would you have any clue on what may have caused this? I think it may be that fact that i didn't remove twinview however it seems a little unrelated

Sorry I don't have a definate clue as to why your problem has occurred. All I do know is that ATI drivers tend to be a bit flakey and are prone to falling over for no apparent reason! Good Luck.
