R5770 (ATI)

  Works partially
What works:

With the ATI released drivers it works. Full resolution and accelerated graphics.

What doesn't work:

Recently I've been having loads of "Low graphic mode" boot ups.

What was done to make it work:

I have no idea why this happens but couldn't find a solution short of a reinstall. Strange thing is it happened on a fresh install too. Only thing I had added was the drivers.

Additional notes:

I have a feeling that the confusion comes between kernels. The driver has to be reinstalled when a new kernel is installed but the stuff from the old kernel is still floating around. That's just an assumption though.
