I can't seem to find Windows 7 drivers for the VGA (graphics card). Assuming they don't exist., what will be the alternative option in that case?

You have a Radeon Xpress 200. Unfortunately I can't see if there is a driver for it that matches Windows 7 32 bit as AMD's Driver Page is down at the moment. Once it comes back up check that link and fill in the forms to see if you can get a Windows 7 driver.

Edit: The driver selection page is now up: If your card is a Radeon Express 200M (Mobile, laptop) then there is a Windows 7 driver. If it is a desktop integrated chipset (Express 200) then the driver only goes up to Vista. However, if you are a desktop try that Vista driver anyway as it may still work just with some features unavailable.

See This Image for the selections to fill out.

It's still down :( And what if I can't find Windows 7 drivers? What would be options then? –  DBC Sep 15 '13 at 7:30
    
If AMD doesn't provide a driver then there is not much you can do except run the card in "VESA Modes" which are, as you've no doubt already experienced, dreadfully slow. If Linux (Xubuntu) is an option for you then you can give the open-source xf86-video-ati driver a try and see if that works out. I say "Xubuntu" up there and not "Ubuntu" because "Xubuntu" uses a different desktop which is more suited for older hardware than the main version. Really though the first thing to do is wait for AMD's page to come back up and see what is there. –  Bill Sep 15 '13 at 7:34
    
@DBC, see my edit. –  Bill Sep 15 '13 at 7:41
    
It's a desktop. I'll try the Windows Vista driver and see if that helps –  DBC Sep 15 '13 at 7:41
    
Ok, the selection page is up but the downloads aren't yet. But now you know what you're looking for. Ok? –  Bill Sep 15 '13 at 7:43

Can you post a screen by running this command in run dialog box.

  1. Hit Win key (start key) + R, a dialog box will be opened.
  2. Type "dxdiag" and enter. A screen will appear, please post it here.

I would like to know the PC model and the exact details which displays on the Diagnostic tool.

P.S.: I found this link here.

Damn! Can't update answer with another link as the 10 rep limit isn't allowing me to post more than 2 links. Anyways, here is the dxdiag screenshot i39.tinypic.com/t4uzpv.png –  DBC Sep 15 '13 at 7:40
    
Well unfortunately your system model doesn't line up Windows 7. I found this link & I assume this your system model. BTW, is it an external VGA or an internal one? –  AzkerM Sep 15 '13 at 7:48
    
Access denied page is coming up when I try to download the Windows Vista driver :( –  DBC Sep 15 '13 at 7:53
    
well for me it gives only a firmware update link to download. Sorry, no luck :/ I assume your pc supports upto XP. You still did not say whether its an internal one or an external one. On the same "dxdiag" menu, check the display tab whether its displays the driver details there by any chance :S –  AzkerM Sep 15 '13 at 7:56
    
The display tab doesn't give much info. It's an integrated chipset for sure as there is no video card attached. –  DBC Sep 15 '13 at 8:00
