ATI driver problem - please help.
 
Before anyone states the obvious that this is an Nividia forum, let me just say that I value the intelligence, know-how and experience enough to lay this slightly inapplicable problem to you fine people.

A colleague has a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1718 laptop that came out with Vista. The integrated graphics card is an Ati Radeon Xpress 200M.

I installed windows 7 on it and as is with most hardware, Windows 7 is not supported.

I've installed the latest legacy drivers - doesn't work.
Fujitsu mentions on their site that you can try and install the normal Vista catalyst drivers for legacy devices but only version 9.3 and earlier.

I have up till now installed version 9.2 Vista; 9.3 Vista; and the latest 12.1 Vista/Win7 as well as the 10.2 Vista Legacy driver. Nothing works. In the Device manager just Windows' generic driver is used.

What the hell am I doing wrong?

you might just be SOL. The card isn't support by windows 7 drivers.

I have been at it for hours today. But the most I find is google ads in forums, ****ty incomplete answers, driver updaters and detectives that require a $30 registration fee and suggestions that I should try the hardware vendor :|

Did you try using custom laptopvideo2go drivers?
