I tried to install AMD catalyst graphics driver for my HP Notebook with specifications as follows:

lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Thames XT/GL [Radeon HD 7600M Series

I already tried installing with instructions from this page but got error like this:

Loading new fglrx-12-6+point DKMS files...
First Installation: checking all kernels...
Building only for 3.7-trunk-686-pae
Building initial module for 3.7-trunk-686-pae<br>
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.7-trunk-686-pae (i686)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/12-6+point/build/make.log for more information.
dpkg: error processing fglrx-modules-dkms (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10
Errors were encountered while processing:

After that I installed—with proper instructions from forums— which did not work for me.

Then I installed but this time the installer says I’ve successfully completed installation and gave me a prompt to reboot the system and I did.

When it booted up the system, it jst displays a black screen with sort of underline cursor and I’m not able to do anything.

I didn’t change or configure xorg.conf after the installation.
