Does anyone know which is really the newest driver for this laptop? I tried the current legacy driver (10.2), and it said that no device it could do was present. Even though ATI radeon xpress series is listed.

It's the xpress 1150 one.

So I just googled for and installed version 9.3 which did install, but I'm left wondering if maybe there's something newer I could be using.

Best solution

I think you have the best driver you're going to find. The latest driver from Dell is dated 10/30/2007 and it is Catalyst 8.31.

Microsoft update may have a newer driver (so I've been told).

Yeah as far as drivers go from dell and such they're always the super oldest ones they can possibly be. They really should update some stuff, at least when it's obvious there are going to be some.

The reason I chose 9.3 to install is because that was the original legacy driver. But since they have made new legacy drivers I was thinking that maybe one of them would work and someone might know offhand what it was.

And no, microsoft update didn't find one to begin with. It's better at that in win7 than XP, but one of this comps purposes is old games. Otherwise I'd prolly be running win7 on it.

Well I ran across something called mobility modder. Its only purpose is to modify drivers to make them be able to see and respond to mobile graphics solutions. The fact that this is needed is completely insane.

But now I've got version 10.2 legacy installed.
