ATi: blank screen after boot before login
Both releases of official ATi Catalyst for Vista (7.1 & 7.2) suffer from a
bug that seems not visible in Vista's built-in driver for my mobility radeon
9700 128MB on my Acer Travelmate 8005LMi (official specs with 1GB RAM
The problem is that with Catalyst installed, after boot, before asking my
account password (when the pearl logo comes up with the music in background)
the screen goes blank and is impossible to resume, even if i try to do a
blind login (the pc seems to not work at all). I found that if i press the
power button to hibernate or Fn+F4 to sleep mode, at the resume everything is
working and i can proceed with the login without any other problem at all
(with also decent performances).
I tried to disable Powerplay but it didn't do anything...
Does anyone have the same problem? What have you done?
Unfortunately ATi doesn't offer support for mobility products and I'm left
