Disable the onboard video in the BIOS and on the motherboard jumper(if possible). If you can't, remove the ATI card and configure linux with the onboard at first. Then stick in the ATI after your downloaded the drivers for it, and install.

To let you know that you may be in for more headache's in the future, ATI sucks on linux. Nvidia drivers and hardware perform much better. I'm not a fanboy, just a realist. But, you'll find out later. Good luck.

As long as you are comfortable with updating your BIOS, then Yes, it's worth a try. Whether or not it actually solves the problem remains to be seen, but I'd definitely suggesting giving it a shot. Good luck with it -- J.W.

If you can't disable onboard video on the bios, then you can on a jumper on the motherboard- unless it's a total POS motherboard. Find the jumper.
