I have the exact same problem as this person
I followed the one fix that was posted.
I added radeon.new_pll=0 to my kernel boot line in grub.cfg and added
options radeon new_pll=0
However when I boot I get an error which says radeon: Unknown parameter 'new_pll=0' and then X wont start, any idea why this might be happening? i've been trying to solve this problem for quite some time.

i have this laptop. mine works with the EXAPixmaps off flag in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf described ->
I also got this to work in debian/ubuntu based distros installing "fglrx-driver" which makes 0 sense because fglrx doesn't support R600 cards.
Main Arch Setup: HP Pavillion p7-1209, Quad-Core i3-2120 3.3Ghz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Intel Graphics
Laptop Arch Setup: Gateway lt3103u Netbook, AMD Athlon64 1.2Ghz, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, ATI X1270 R600
Thank you so much, I had been trying to find a fix for sososo long.
