Z61p Windows 7 Graphic

Hello,

 

I would like to install Windows 7 on my Z61p notebook but I can't find a graphic ATI driver compatible for Windows 7. Please help.

 

Thank you!

Re: Z61p Windows 7 Graphic

I have the same problem. Looking for a 256MB ATI FireGL V5200 driver for Windows7 64bit.

 

The AMD support site offers drivers only for other FireGL versions.

 

The www-307.ibm.com site that magicmermaid referred to above lists nothing useful. The ATI Display Driver listed there is highly obscure. I dont know what has changed after installing that 100MB file. The graphic board driver installed still is one from June 2006 for a "Standard VGA-Graphic-Board 16 MB".

 

Where's the proper driver???

You are right robg...

I can't find the Windows 7 driver for ATI Catalyst Control Center.

I don't understand why Lenovo would not be on top of this... it's a real turn off.

 

UPDATE:

Guys, do you think the drivers on this link contain everything to upgrade system for Windows 7?

Re: Z61p Windows 7 Graphic

Have you tried Vista driver for Fire GL 5200/5250

Re: Z61p Windows 7 Graphic

thanks for all your help guys! ajkula66's advice has helped! Smiley Happy Not sure if running a vista driver on 7 is the perfect solution but it works for now.

 

Not that once the driver is updated one must re-assess the windows experience index in order to enjoy the aero glass effects. Looks brilliant.

 

Thanks guys!
