    I have a laptop with onboard Radeon 7500 graphics and since the early driver versions the mobility cards now use different drivers from the desktops. your best bet is to find a laptop from a major manufacturer that has the same video card as you do and use their drivers. I use IBM's drivers from the thinkpads but they're only catalyst 3.2's

    you'll likely have to wait awhile for notebook vendors to certify them on their hardware.

    i realized its an old post but the drivers from that site worked on my ati mobility radeon 7500 laptop.. the ones from dell's site worked.. the ones from HP's site forced me to reboot into safe mode and roll back to my last system restore point.
