try running

Code:
aticonfig --adapter=all --initial
Also I'm noticing that you dont have a virtual screen section in your screen sub-section. Just curious how did you install the drivers? And just importantly, how did you enable gnome 3, since ubuntu comes with compiz/unity stock. You may also want to try removing xinerama via vi or leafpad. I really don't think that it's necessary.
