Best advice I can offer is reinstall XP back onto the machine.

I ran into a similar problem with video drivers and i actually use a 3rd party driver made my OmegaDrivers.net . However, these drivers are no longer supported by ATI, but i have been running this driver for over a year. Heres the link: http://www.omegadrivers.net/ati.php - just look for your card and OS , then download

hope it helps!

ATI has never supported laptop video. Laptops cannot use generic drivers, only specific drivers from the laptop maker or "hacked" for laptop drivers which omegadrivers.net has... along with a few other companies like:

www.laptopvideo2go.com
and
www.notebookdriverdownload.com
