XP, Vista, W7 64bit Home Premium

You have a pretty old system but you may be able to get an XP driver to work with Windows 7 by installing it in compatibility mode with WXP or WXP sp2 - To do this click the below link and download the driver, firstly, then this:

To install a driver/program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with XP/vista etc- check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

Download: Drivers and Downloads

Have a look at this link for details (note this also works for W7) : You cannot install a device driver by using its installation program in Windows Vista

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Welcome to SevenForums.

Don't get too hopeful. When you check that "compatibility" option when installing a pgm or driver, you are simply running the install program in compatibility mode. This does NOT mean that the the program will then be compatible with Win 7.

What will quite ofter work is if there is a vista driver for your graphics, which then you must install in compatibility mode.

I make no promises, but you can help us to help you by following, precisely, the procedure I give below.

As whest pointed out, the best you're going to get for it is the last XP driver.
