Here's a similar report on a linux mailing list that might help in debugging this:

I can confirm this (as I have this exact laptop, using it now in fact) though I did not test it recently. I think I logged this as another bug too, which I'll try to find.

Resolution: duplicate
Status: newclosed

I found the other bug, which I logged about a year ago: #2675. I started looking through the messages Scott linked to, but since then the Radeon code has changed a lot. When it comes to drivers I don't know what I'm doing, and I'm not sure what to change in our driver to make it work. But I may keep looking at it since I like this laptop and would like it to work with Haiku. Though I guess there is always VESA mode...

Anyhow, I'm closing this bug as a duplicate.
