Windows 7: Please help me!

Please help me!

Hello everyone! I'm an idiot when it comes to computers so I really need some help. So, I had Windows XP on my laptop before, then I upgraded to Windows 7 and my graphics card is no longer recognized/working. My laptop is a Toshiba Satelite A75-S209 (I know it sounds like a piece of crap, but this baby used to run WoW) My graphics card is a MOBILITY RADEON 9000/9100 IGP Series. I have gone to Toshiba's support site and downloaded the driver for it. When I tried to install it I got an error saying the installation failed and to try installing a standard VGA graphics adapter first. Well, that was there before. I've tried numerous things. I've read a lot of posts about this error on these forums, and that's what brought me to sign up. Please! I'm dying! I want to play Minecraft right now.

Hi tworm, Welcome to the forums, Have you tried installing the driver in compatibility mode ? Compatibility Mode remember to run as administrator

Just out of curiosity: are you using the XP drivers? (Those are all that I see listed for your model.)

I hope that they do everything that you need. You won't get Aero Glass effects, but they are easy to live without. You won't be able to run anything that needs DirectX 10 or 11, but that's probably not significant either.
