The system stop responding at graphical logon screen after press

OK, but for ATI Radeon 9600 video driver, the system will stop
responding either after press the Language button or at the GNOME

the video driver works, but I cannot change the default language
setting at the graphical logon screen and GNOME cannot startup.

2. Restart X at runlevel 5, so the graphical logon screen appears.
3. Click Language button on the left-bottom corner.
Actual Results: A white window appears, but no languages list in it,
the system lose responding...
