            Is it possible to gather boot logs from system? Like dmesg, Xorg log from /var/log, there should be errors with info on why fglrx can't start.

            Is switch to text console works for you after boot? (for example Ctrl+Alt+F2.) If it works, you can login and uninstall fglrx there (and also copy necessary logs to your home folder, so you will able to send it to technical support).

                AMD recommends using the graphics drivers provided by your notebook's manufacturer as the manufacturer may customize the drivers to support the built-in display and the features and functions specific to the notebook.  Customized graphics drivers are available for download from most notebook manufacturer's web site.

                If the current operating system is not the version originally installed on the notebook it may not meet all requirements and compatible graphics drivers may not be available. Please refer to the notebook manufacturer for supported operating systems and drivers.

                AMD provides a reference for AMD Mobility Radeon graphics drivers with limited support for notebook specific features and functions.  This is not intended to be used as a replacement for the notebook manufacturer's driver.
