Try:
1. Plug to usb 2.0 port
2. Use USBBusFix=Yes
3. busratio=xx (google your xx)

try this, you need delete or remove all ATI kexts from S/L/E , boot with -s

mount /
mkdir kext_backup
cd System/Library/Extensions
mv ATI* /kext_backup
cd System/Library/Caches
rm -rf *
diskutil repairPermissions /
reboot -R lnk
