There are no Windows 7 video drivers for that chipset. That is quite old technology.

You should consider replacing all that system, or adding a stand alone video card, in the very least, if you want to run Windows 7. Otherwise, you will be stuck with the generic VGA drivers provided by Win 7.

^ Almost positive the 200m is a mobile variant of the 200 a stand alone card can't be installed.

I went to AMD's website and looked up a driver to see what I would get, it brought me to this page of legacy devices no longer receiving new drivers.
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/integrated_vista32.aspx?type=2.7&product=2.7.2.3.2&lang=English

" AMD’s DirectX 9 ATI Radeon graphics accelerators are not officially supported under Windows 7. If the user chooses to, they can install the ATI Catalyst Windows Vista graphics driver under Windows 7. "

There is a 2 year old driver there for Vista that may work fine under 7 if you want to try it, but AMD doesn't officially support it. I know from experience that most Vista drivers worked in 7, so it's worth a shot to try.

I can confirm that loneninja's recommendation does work. I had to repeatedly reinstall the Radeon ATI 200 driver to get proper resolution after upgrading to Windows 7. Eventually that game got old and I found this posting. Downloaded and installed the VISTA drivers above. Now working like a dream! Thanks loneninja!

I also have the Gateway mt3507 and the xpress 200m GPU. I am using Windows 7 and using the xpress 200m driver 8.341.0.0 which came out 1/25/2007. It was the latest driver I found for this chipset. Just google it and it can easily be found.

I hope the link to cnet shows below. It says it's for HP but it works fine on my Gateway computer.

I have a Toshiba satellite M40 and have the same problem described here when installing driver for ATI Radeon Xpress 200 M under windows 7. I installed AMD Catalyst 10.2 legacy driver but had the same problem of generic VGA driver and so the best resolution for my graphic card cannot be displayed. But, then I found a solution. After installed the legacy catalyst driver I went to the video properties and updated the driver manually. Selected the driver in the computer choosing the old driver (that came with the computer disks). After a reboot it is working perfectly! But note that if you try to install this older driver with the original installer you have an error stating that this driver is not supported in windows 7.

After hours of wasted time trying to install a GPU driver for W7 on an old Toshiba A105-S2051 using the ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics/chipset. I tried the link mentioned above, and other Vista versions, but yet every time I would run the setup program, there were only two options: Catalyst Install Manager, and the MS Visual C++ installation.

It didn't even have the option for the Display drivers. Why, I have no idea, the links claimed it included the display driver. Continuing with the installation, while successful, resulted in no drivers installed. What good is having those two applications mentioned above but no display drivers?

Any ideas what would cause this? This is a fresh installation of W7, using just the default standard VGA drivers.

Fortunately, MS Update had a driver update for it, and after a reboot, worked perfectly.

But I am curious why nothing from AMD would properly detect and install the needed drivers to get the GPU from using the standard VGA drivers to something acceptable as MS did?

I also needed and suffered a bit, but now is running 100%.
I got the solution in this link: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-U...

Post friend who helped me:

"c'mon guys, did anyone try this,(just 1 page away)

Drivers are available through windows update, if windows update don't show them search at the microsoft update catalog; http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx... , the latest Win7 drivers are dated Dec, 2008 version 8.561.0.0, there are two versions, one willbe 64 bit, the other 32 bit, my guess is the larger will be 64 bit, download and extract with any utility for extracting *.cab files, install with device manager

^^^ Ati's drivers from website won't install on older mobility cards, use these from windows update, pratically the same, maybe different revision thats about all, other than no catalyst control center.... but work just as well and install without mods, warnings, errors

Yesterday, I encountered this exact problem with my Toshiba l30-10t, equipped with the 200m. This laptop came with Vista Home Basic, which I replaced by XP within the first six months and it ran great for the past 6 years. Since XP support has ended recently, I decided to buy an OEM version of W7 Home Premium together with an SSD. Installation went great, everything worked, except for the display. No higher resolution available than 1024x768, and CCC will install, but it has no effect. I tried several options mentioned above and none of them solved my problem. Then I thought of the installation dvd's with Vista drivers on them, but I couldn't find them, so I downloaded the drivers from the Toshiba website. They come as a zip file, which I unpacked and then I clicked the exe file, I had a few errors and eventually nothing happened. I opened the device manager and tried to update the display driver from there, by choosing 'search computer for drivers' (I don't know the exact english translation). I gave up the path to the downloaded Vista drivers, clicked 'next' and bingo! After a restart, it works like it should.
