Windows 7: Win 7 graphics drivers for Gateway MX7525

[Solved] Win 7 graphics drivers for Gateway MX7525

I am looking to install graphics driver for MX7525 notebook in Win7 32bit.
It has ATI® Mobility RADEON™ X600 graphics.
Complete specs here Gateway Support - MX7525 Notebook Specifications
I guess the only OS that supports this is XP. Is there any way I could install some version of Catalyst or the XP driver?
I tried AMD Catalyst™ Display Driver v10.2 (Windows Vista - 32-Bit Edition), which mentions support for ATI Radeon X600 Series
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_vista32.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.13〈=English
but that didn't work. Then I tried the same driver with "Mobility Modder". That didn't work either.

Hi,

I've noticed that in the first section you mention you have "Win 7 32Bit" but the driver link you've provided is for 64Bit. I think that may be the issue if you're trying to install a 64Bit driver on a 32Bit machine

The link I gave was by mistake. I have corrected it in the original post. I had in fact used the 32bit. I just confirmed that again.

Thanks. I will look into it in detail.
One thing I realized after posting the question is, the driver I used is compatible with "ATI Radeon X600 Series" not "ATI Mobility Radeon X600 Series". I am not sure if that's the reason for failure.

From having a look around at HardwareHeaven, it appears that Mobility Modder doesn't work properly with the 10.2 legacy driver. Did come across a few that it does work with the Catalyst 9.11, which you can find here,

ATI Catalyst 9.11 Windows 7 | Vista (32-bit) download from Guru3D.com

If that works I would then leave well enough alone as there will be nothing in any of the newer drivers (and there is only up to the 10.2 anyway) for your X600.

It is as there is no support for any of the mobility GPU's in the older drivers.

Problem solved.
I downloaded the latest driver which are tested with Mobility Modder from here DriverHeavenDownloads.net - Fast n Furious (ATI Catalyst 8.12, Windows Vista 32-Bit)
And it just worked perfectly using Mobility Modder

Thanks everyone.
