What you may be experiencing in Win8 is what I encountered on my laptop -- which uses the infamous Intel 915GM chipset. Instead of using the Intel XPDM driver from Windows 7, Win8 uses a generic Basic driver -- which actually works quite well.

So, if yours is using the same driver, it's not actually an ATI driver, it's a generic one from MS that works with your card.

can i get this generic driver for windows 7?

I don't think so, because it installed automatically in my laptop. I think it was called Microsoft Basic Display Adapter -- and I first saw it in Win8. In Windows 7, there were actually Intel drivers that worked.

You need to go back using XP because there's no Windows 8 drivers for your Radeon 7000.
