awah, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Considering the age of that laptop and the GPU that is in it (ATI Mobility 9600 or similar), the best you're going to get for it is the last XP driver as there are not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for it. Best to go to IBM/Lenovo and get the XP driver for it. It may take using,

Compatibility Mode

to get it to install.
