I had a similar experience a week or so ago with an X1400 on my Thinkpad
Z61M. (I had 2D running previously, not 3D.) I fetched the previous
version of the driver from the AMD Catalyst site and installed it after
purging the Debian package. The script said there was an error of some
kind but nevertheless fglrx worked again at 1600x1050 in 2D.

Default ATI X1600 Radeon Missing 1600x1050 Resolution After "fglrx" Upgrade

Hi Georgi,

I do have an AMD64 system, and I'm attaching my xorg.conf. It was
generated by the aticonfig program and has an external monitor
configured.

I hope it helps,
David

Default ATI X1600 Radeon Missing 1600x1050 Resolution After "fglrx" Upgrade

Hi Anthony, thanks for the tip. I'm downloading version 7.11 from the
ATI website. Which packages did you purge prior to reinstalling? All
of the fglrx packages or just the driver?

Thanks,
David

I think it was just the driver. As I said, 3D wasn't working for me
anyway.

Hope it works for you!
