I believe the driver is called "sis" and should be included with most current distos.

Jain,

I also had similar problem for my sony laptop , with ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 Graphics card.
But when I installed , 7.2 it is working fine.

You may also consider the following options

you can also now configure by using Xconfigurator command.
If you did not find your graphics , if you can select generic in SIS

hope this might help you
