You can unlock the drivers with this little tool:

Mobility Modder - DriverHeaven.net

Works like a charme! A tutorial is also included on this page!

Thanks for posting. I can testify to this. My Dell ATI Mobility Radeon x1400 will not allow the install of ati's own catalyst drivers. Currently using what windows installed, although the dell vista drivers did work and installed the ccc. I'll have to try this out and see if I can get the ati drivers to install.

Tried x64 Win7 9.6 Catalysts, x64 Vista-Win7 9.6 Catalysts. Also tried dell's drivers again.

All that it does is install the Catalyst install manager. It doesn't list CCC at all. And manually trying to install the driver says this version of windows is not supported.

Can I manually modify the inf's to include support for win7 and/or my card?

Anyone know the device ID of Radeon Mobility HD 4570 512 mb version?
You might be able to find the info you want in the device manager\display adapter\properties\details (tab)
