Installed kmod-catalyst now screen goes to sleep when fedora loads


I've been trying to play quake live but in full screen I get horrible lag. I looked online and found you can install ati catalyst which I did. Now when I boot I get the fedora 17 logo filling up loading screen and then the monitor goes to sleep. I installed the drivers with yum install kmod-catalyst and checked the driver module matched my kernel. I'm pretty sure its the latest one same as my laptop 3.5.2-1.fc17.x86_64

I'm running Fedora 17 with a HD6850.

Anyone know how to make the catalyst drivers work on Fedora 17? Or how I go about uninstalling them and going back to the old drivers?
