video drivers help - new to Windows

Coming from Linux, I installed Windows 7 on my old Gateway Laptop MX 6030. Looking for the lastest video driver for my hardware. I am showing my video setup in the attached screen shot. With the standard VGA driver loaded. I have no screensavers etc. I have my resolution set but want to know if this hardware can be updated. Thanks

I installed the driver set from Gateway, I actually put in the serial number and it gave me the XP driver which was the same one you indicated.
I installed it and it showed it installed properly in the device manager. Windows prompted me to restart when I did, resolution reset to 800x600 and view attached screen shot for more info. Any suggestions? Thanks for your assistance.

If you have 7 x86 get this:

NVIDIA DRIVERS 185.85 WHQL

If you have x64, get this:

NVIDIA DRIVERS 196.21 WHQL

Reboot.

You listed an AMD CPU in your specs - chipset installers + GPU are usually for AMD. I would go through the first 2 guides in my sig to set up 7.
