I check boot setup and I can't choose the graphic system at boot time. By
default, it is the Intel GMA Chip.

Under Windows 7, there is a button on the laptop to push to switch to the ATI
video card. And you can configure Windows to auto-select the ATI video card at
start up of the operating system.

Under Linux, I fix the choice of the graphic system with the follwing
directives into the xorg.conf since the button to select graphics system is not
working :

Driver    "radeon"
BusID    "PCI:01:00.0"

I thought it was the right solution but it seems to be not.
