ATI Radeon card won't work
(copied from the forum)
I upgraded my hardware to a 4gb ram and 4 core AMD processor, but the real problem is the video card. The motherboard I bought has an ATI Radeon HD 4250 and I can't get a picture to show. It starts to boot, shows the splash screen then goes to a black screen where nothing works. I can't even switch to terminal using control-alt-F1 (F2, F3, nor F4).
Weirdness is, if I select the option in the GRUB options to boot without the splash screen, can get a picture over the HDMI connection but the brightness fades in and out.
