Windows 7: ATI Mobility Radeon 7500

Hi Nismo,

I'm afraid of that too... That's why I'm considering going back to the "old" xp... Unfortunatelly those that sold our laptops don't really care about them anymore... even if they're not so old or have the right performance. that's that...
Nevertheless, I keep hoping some stubborn geek with better knowledge than us, can work around this and write a driver from parts of new drivers combined with the old xp driver... (can't really say if this is an easy thing to do or not, but it sure would be nice if someone did it...).
I'll keep on "listening" this forum and hoping it comes true. I suggest you do the same. In the mean time, I'll try to find some courage to go back to the old xp and save my processor from burning like hell...

Hi all,
I went back to XP from win 7 because of high CPU use for graphics, but now I notice that XP also uses lots of CPU for graphics (about 35-55%.)
Have I got something wrong, drivers or settings?
T42, 2GB ram, Radeon 7500.
Thanks.

ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 on IBM T42 problem

I have ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 32mb, I know that it doesnt support Aero. I faced the same issue with Vista however it was solved by choosing the ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 driver from the windows and it worked fine (without Aero of course) and it supported movies and S-Video and everything. I tried to do the same thing on Windows 7 but i didnt find the ATI 9000 driver available, i tried many other methods like different xp drivers but all failed and freezed my pc when i tried to do the rating... So if anyone know how i can fix this problem i will be really pleased... Thanks a lot...

Did you have any luck solving this problem? I have the same problem now. I can not set up external monitor...

I am sorry to disappoint you, but our T42 or let us say ATI Mobility Radeon 7500, is only completely supported with XP, I recently tried to do a one last attempt to make this vga work with Windows 7, and i have first tried the IBM ATI Driver, but kept having a blue screen. I even tried a DNA Driver (Modded one) that is supposed to support our vga with windows 7, and still did not work. I then used Drivermax and got a driver from their database, and it is working better than the IBM one, no blue screens so far, however the ratings are 1.0 and 1.0, instead of 1.9 and 1.0. And no external monitor working, and i even tried Generals game, which used to work flawlessly on xp, it did not work! So, just use xp and stay away from trouble! if u r too much into windows 7 for its appearance, u can use a theme or something. I think this is my last attempt to make this vga work with 7, i will sadly revert back to xp. There is one solution, is to buy an external vga, which i havent found yet in the county i live in, UAE (Dubai). So in summary, if u want to use all ur vga's features (like some few games that works on it like generals, or to use it to watch movies or work on an external monitor) either buy an external vga or just use xp.

If I came up with something new, which i doubt, i will post it here. Otherwise dont expect something will change.

regards

There are NO Windows 7 drivers for that card. Period. Don't promise things that do not exist.

What you will find, at best, are Vista drivers -- which are also available directly from AMD/ATI -- and need to be installed using compatibility mode.

I have tried using the Catalyst downloads without much success. However, I have found the following to be useful, not just for T42, but for other graphics cards that don't appear in the WIN 7 list.

Actually your information about the 7500 driver is not accurate. You can download the XP driver from lenovo website and run the executable so that it creates a folder on c:\drivers\win\display. Once that is done go into device manager and click on the Standard VGA adapter and update the driver software. When prompted, browse for driver software on your computer and point to the folder on c: drive. It should automatically find your 7500 driver and will allow things like 3d text etc to work in screensavers, and other video settings.
