hi there everyone!
i just installed win7 ultimate 32bit on my new ssd in my laptop. its an ibm r50, with 768mb ram, a pentium m 1.4ghz cpu, the 32gb pata ssd, and afaik ati radeon mobility 7500 graphics. however, in win7, it just calls it a GENRIC VGA VIDEO ADAPTER or something like that. when i try to run games or multi-media stuff, it says i have no graphics acceleration and to check my drivers. i have tried a program i like called DRIVEREASY, and i have tried windows update. please help me find the drivers, and get my computer working better, thank you very much... :)  and please dont tell me my laptop is a piece of crap. i already know that XD

that video adapter is too old, nearly 7 years old.... it doesn't even have driver support for vista...
all you can do is go back to xp
