FWIW, a google search for HoolockParent turns upo lots of hits. But generally the ones I sampled just say to update to 10.6.8 which is supposed to have the latest drivers. Your sig says you are using 10.7.2. So I would think you have the proper drivers. On the other hand maybe apple got "carried away" removing stuff from Snow Leopard to Lion (like rosetta, etc.) and that got caught up in the, 'er, "upgrade".

Hint: before or when upgrading, make a clean install of a new OS and/or clone and keep a bootable backup of your working system. Keep it for a month or two, then use it as a backup for the new OS.
I have found and given up on the whole way drivers are bundled, the way the OS updates are forced on users. And there are still $$$ large suites that are still testing Lion. Fine for consumers but not always for everyone.
As long as you have 10.6.3 DVD you are fine or it is still available for $30.
You bought it, it doesn't work, return or exchange it with Apple assuming it is from Apple Store and is new Mac product. Otherwise you might look on site that has flashing tools and basically I guess, and not sure it would help or not, I think RMA is best.

Not 100% but a start.

Maybe you should re-install Mac OS X. It sounds like the driver is lost or messed up.Beige G3, G4/867, G4/dual 1.25 MDD, MacPro'09 w cheap SSD, Mac OS 8.6 or Earlier, and 9.2, 10.5 and Server - LW IIg, LW 4/600, ATalk ImageWriter L

can't I run just a specific 'Package' included in the OS X Lion's installation disk, for the Display card's driver..!?
I've check and found following packages in the Lion's Installation disk... but don't know which one of them contains the driver of the display card:

Apple changes driver support. It isn't OS agnostic or universal or backward compatible.
Clone your system
Clean it up and repair
But best may sound long and hard road, it is not. A clean install takes 20 minutes and an hour to update and migrate your basics over (IF you trust using Setup Assistant)
Quck fixes are rarely quick or fix.

i contacted AMD for the same issue, here's their answer:
maybe you need a new Videobios for your Apple system. Please contact Apple for the driver and the update, bacause thier hardware differs a little.

If you really want to dig the drivers out of the lion installer disk, then based on my snow leapord installer, of the names you list above, take a look at BaseSystemBinaries.pkg and BaseSystemResources.pkg. On snow leopard those correspond to just BaseSystem.pkg and in there, in System/Library/Extensions are all the kexts including Radeon kexts -- plural -- not sure which ones you don't need.

Hey Mr. Hatter, thanks for your suggetion but I've completely formatted my hard disk and re-installed everything and still everything is just the same as it was before..!
Thanks Oliver for the information, I never heard about something like Videobios in Mac..! How to get it..?

Even so that helps. It rules out 3rd party software or that the OS or disk drive (esp if you formatted the drive).
Starting with a clean OS rules out that so you can keep looking, and troubleshooting is a matter of trial and error and sometimes swapping parts as well as removing unknowns.
