Aren't the drivers included in the Catalyst suite?

That is meant for the 5xxx series, if that is not what you're looking for then, according to AMD/ATI, the drivers supplied by the notebook manufacturer are the ones that must be used as they are specific to the display type.

Advisory: The display driver supplied by the laptop manufacturer is customized for the built-in flat panel display, and the graphics features and functions specific to the laptop. It is strongly recommended to use the supplied drivers.

From ATI's website:

NOTE: The ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 500v series GPUs are based on the award-winning architecture of the ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4000 series, DirectX® 10.1-capable GPUs.

The Drivers link on the above linked page does not list any Win7-64bit drivers for the HD 500 series card, however, if it is based on the HD 4000 series tech then you may be able to use the HD 4000 series drivers for Win7-64bit

You could also check the website for the laptop manufacturer.
