Sorry to hear that.
To get help you can always post a message on R3D forums or report the issue directly to AMD.
Yeah, I did but no fixes. I think the problem is that ATI/AMD doesn't care for the old video cards and OSes.

I had almost ZERO issues with ATi/AMD drivers, even when I was beta testing for them.
It all depends on the hardware configuration and specific games.

This on Windows - I don't consider Linux as a gaming platform.
I had problems with their newer drivers hard locking my computers with videos, even in web browsers, on my very old Windows XP Pro. SP3 machine. I went back to very old Catalyst drivers v8.10 and no more problems!

At work, my latest drivers refused to uninstall fully. I had to use a driver clean software in the updated 2.75 years old 64-bit W7's safe mode.

Geez, I was hoping ATI/AMD would do better with its Linux drivers especially with open sourced drivers. I guess not. I stick with NVIDIA.

However, I like their video cards in Windows. I still use my Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB).

ATI 9800 Pro was my last ATI card, i couldnt stand the drivers then, and wont even think to deal with them now. That said there are some problems with the newest SLI drivers from nvidia, which is not normal for them.

I had my last straw with ATI 3 months back - after sticking with them for the price/performance value compared to Nvidia.

Non-stop driver issues and software issues led me to give up on them and spend the extra on an Nvidia card.

So far (and yes, only 3 months) the Nvidia experience has been flawless. No 'issues' with game compatibility ran into yet - unlike when I had my ATI and it was a constant cycle of installing an updated driver to fix one thing, only to have it break compatibility with something else.
