  2. Re: AW: blackscreen after startx, cannot install backtrack 5 r2 (ati powercolor hd585

    aticonfig --initial
    aticonfig --px-dgpu

    Re: HP DV7 - ATI HD 5650 startx issue (Black screen)

    I also have HD5650 on HP 3030TX laptop, and haven't seen this mentioned on the forums yet, so that's how it worked for me.
