Most likely you need to reinstall fglrx
Login single user mode &
Code:
 apt-get install fglrx

fglrx - isn't in the repository. I use wheezy b4 version, but there is fglrx-driver packet. Should I reinstall it?

Either that or install proprietary driver from AMD.

Refer to the Debian wiki page: http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary

Or try
Code:
# apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
Code:
# apt-get install --reinstall fglrx-driver fglrx-modules-dkms
Code:
# aticonfig --initial
Code:
# echo options radeon modeset=0 > /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf
Reboot

I did it when I had set it before.
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=102999

But I try to reinstall it now.

I did it, but unfortunately, I got this message again - oh, no! something has gone wrong!

I'm going to look through /var/log/syslog and share its strange lines with you

Well according to your Xorg log file, your drivers are installed fine. If you are logging in via gdm, your users ~/.xsession-errors file may contain information as to what's crashing.

Sorry, I'm a newbie in Linux. I don't understand it how I can logging in via gdm. What should I do for it?
Should I run in single mode as root and then execute gdm3 for my login in graphic mode? Or I should make something others?

Does X/gnome automatically start up when you login? If so, wait till you get the error message, then drop to a console by hitting control+alt+f2. Log into the console and then run 'pastebinit ~/.xsession-errors'. You may have to install pastebinit first with apt-get. That command will give you a URL back. Let us know what that URL is.

By the way, before setting grlf driver I set it:

http://www.debian-blog.ru/programmno...md-radion.html

May be it calls crash now?

This source only in Russian, but command is written in English as usual.

gdm is your desktop environment.
Do you have firmware-linux-nonfree installed?
