  • In my opinion, if the display card works fine, we do not need to install the driver. Instead, we can hide it by right click on the update and choose Hide.

     

    Meanwhile, I searched on both Dell website and ATI website. Dell does not provide any newer driver later than 2005:

    On ATI website, we can find the Radeon X300 but not mobility Radeon X300:

    Please Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.

     

    Thus I suggest that let's just hide the update and waiting for ATI provide a driver.

     

    Of course, if display card works improperly, we can try some steps to install a driver. For example, we can uninstall current display card before installing the driver.

  • Try this instead:

    Alternatively, if you've installed 64-bit windows 7, try this one instead:

    No guarantees, but it might work and is your best shot.


    Notebook/laptop computers often have 'manufacturer customised' implementations of the graphics chipset, and for that reason it is always best to obtain display drivers from the laptop manufacturer, rather than from Windows Update or the GPU manufaturer websites.  Your laptop is NOT supported by the manufacturer for any Windows version beyond Windows XP.  You might not have success for that reason.


    Contrary to the beliefs and practices of many people, the best approach to using a laptop/notebook computer is to use it only with the preinstalled OS version, or upgrade it only to a later version which the manufactuer adds support for.  The best way, by far, of having a later version Windows running on your laptop is to replace your laptop with a newer one which comes with that later version Windows preinstalled!  There is (and can be) no guarantee that your laptop will remain compatible with any and all future Windows version releases.



    ATi/AMD, by the way, do NOT provide support for people using the above display drivers under Windows 7.  Their 'legacy' support for such older graphics chipsets extends only to their use under Windows Vista.
