I am not sure what the package of your driver is call. I use Debian and it is "fglrx-driver" which I believe is not what it is called in the Ubuntu repo but I am going to use the name I have. You will have to edit that to fit Ubuntu.

Have you run;
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure fglrx-driver
this should either help or give you an error message that will help.

I know that a lot of times on my box it needs a specific command run to get the initial configuration set. I do not remember what that is but it should come up, I think, if you run the dpkg command.

Unless your laptop's BIOS has an option to disable the onboard intel GPU, you will be unable to use the AMD GPU at the moment.
