I am back again. The only thing that seems to work with the driver
provided by ATI is the DVI display. Disabling the Laptop-Display and
switching it back on does not work, the system crashes with suspend2disk
and so on.
So I would like to try the open source drivers again.

I tried this, but the radeontools that I downloaded and compiled seems
to differ from what is described on that webpage:
radeontool regmatch FP_GEN_CNTL
usage: radeontool [command]
dac [on|off] - power down the external video outputs (on)
light [on|off] - power down the backlight (on)
regs - show a listing of some random registers
I guess they renamed the registers. Should I use one of the following
instead of FP_GEN_CNTL?
Is this stuff documented somewhere?
Thanks and greetings
