It is a bug.

Boot into any mode you can, uninstall all ATI related driver.

I assume you might not have connection, thus, using another PC/Laptop, download the latest driver for your graphic card and transfer into your PC. Install it and reboot to normal mode.

@Jr0x

The newest driver is not always the best choice for stability. The OP should try the newest driver and if it acts up, they should revert to an earlier version.

Yeah, latest driver doesn't mean the good one.

But shall have them to try out the latest one first and see the result.
