Card name: Radeon X1300 / X1550 Series (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM)
Windows 7 doesn't have a specific driver for a particular card in that family, they just throw in a lame driver that supposedly works with any of them.

dortiz, since your card is no longer supported by ATI, your best chance would be modded drivers, created by the community....

To install your modded driver you need: Mobility Modder - ATI Version
The installation process is explained there.

Then, if you want some sort of control panel for your card you need: |WIN7| Latest Catalyst Control Center for Legacy Mobility Cards. It is not a must-have, but if you want to change some advanced graphics settings, you'll need this.

The process is a bit long, but I think it's worth the effort to try it.
