Windows 7: Radeon Mobility 9000 IGP driver for 7?

Radeon Mobility 9000 IGP driver for 7?

Hey all. I recently upgraded a friend's old laptop (Toshiba Satellite A70) to Windows 7, but there are no drivers available for his graphics chip/card. Does anybody know where I might find one and how to properly install it?

I'm aware that the 9000 series only supports up to DX8.1 and thus can't run Aero, but that's not a big deal. I merely want the capability to run the machine at its native resolution without having "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" listed in Device Manager.

I heard it's actually easier to install an XDDM driver in Vista so I may yet try that, but if possible, I'd like to get this thing running properly in 7 first before I try that. Thanks.

Best you're going to get for something that old is the last XP driver. And seeing as it is a laptop and a Toshiba at that, you're stuck with whatever one that Toshiba has available as the last reference ATI XP driver will not install on it.

I'd give Linux a shot too.
