Can you post the contents of your /var/log/Xorg.0.log. I'm interested in the section that looks like this:
Code:
(II) LoadModule: "radeon"
[    43.175] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so
[    43.204] (II) Module radeon: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
[    43.204] 	compiled for 1.12.4, module version = 6.14.99
[    43.204] 	Module class: X.Org Video Driver
[    43.204] 	ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 12.1
[    43.205] (II) RADEON: Driver for ATI Radeon chipsets:
We are looking for the radeon module being loaded. Do you see it? If not what module is it loading? Oh, and what kernel are you using?

So it looks like you're still using fglrx. You might want to try the radeon module.

You could look that up as easily as I could. Try to learn to find things on your own. I googled linux removing modules and found this:
http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/add-rem...ernel-modules/
If you don't like that one you can find many more on your own.

If you know a better way, you're welcome to try it. I don't understand what you mean by "the system itself".

Don't you always boot from the grub menu?

1. Check out this site: http://community.linuxmint.com/hardware/view/15102
2. Read this:
Quote:
HD-667X-CNF3 Radeon HD 6670 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP
Brand: XFX (Video card)
Release: Nadia
Status: Works perfectly
3. Burn a Linux Mint live CD and try it out on your machine.
4. If it "works perfectly" use the same module the live CD uses.
5. Problem solved.

1. Have you tried the Linux Mint Live CD?
2. If yes, then do you have the same problem shutting down?
3. If no, then you should try it and report the results.
4. If Linux Mint worked perfectly, then why did you install the fglrx driver? This is a non-free driver available from here. You have to download this driver; it does not come with the kernel. Why did you download this driver? This makes no sense.
5. The only data you gave about this problem mentions the fglrx driver.
Please give a clear explanation of what your problem is.
