No display signal after boot with Radeon Xpress 200


Hi Guys,

I've got an odd problem here, which my very limited linux knowledge seems unable to solve!

This happens on both FC8 (x86) and openSUSE 10 (x86_64), so it's definitly not distro specific. Let me tell you what happens when i boot up in SUSE:

During boot, my monitor blanks and reports no signal. I **think** this is as it is starting X, but i'm not sure because the text moves too fast to let me see what bootup event preceeds this blackout.

I have tried the following suggestions already, with no luck:
Installed ATI drivers - no change
Checked xorg.conf - all resolutions listed are ok
Ran "#sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx" - which also blanked my screen
Used "#init 3" - which just gave me command line
Used "#init 5" - which blanked my screen

Some of the above may not even be relevant, but regardless, i'm out of ideas!

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Justin

Would you be so kind as to post both your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and the error output, assuming there is one, that X generates when it attempts to start.

Thanks,
Eric.

Also, your system information would be nice. I see that you have tried an X86 and X86-64. I assume that you have a 64bit system.
