Toshiba notebook wont install ati drivers

Hi

I have a Toshiba Satellite Notebook A200
Model Name: Satellite A200-23J
Model number: PSAE6E-0E6041ZA

It has a ATI Raedon 2600 built in graphics
Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2370 @ 1.73GHz
2GB RAM
Running Windows 7 32Bit

My current driver is listed below:

Driver Provider: ATI Technologies
Driver Date: 2009/11/04
Driver Version: 8.671.0.0
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher

I cannot load the latest drivers that i downloaded from the ati website.
The install completes successfully but it takes very quickly and I know it cud not have installed everything.
I cannot find the Catalyst Control Center.

I would really appreciated any help.

Regards
Eugene

I think you must have tried the desktop driver.

Depending on where you look, the correct names for the laptop version are:
Radeon Mobility HD 2600 -or- Mobility Radeon HD 2600

ATI only offers a Driver for Win7 beta
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonmob_win7-32.aspx?type=2.4.2&product=2.4.2.3.14&lang=English&rev=9.9&ostype=Windows%207%20-%2032-Bit%20Edition

ATI says to go to the laptop manufacturer for the final Win7 driver.
Then here:

Toshiba says: ""Installation of Windows 7 is not supported by Toshiba for laptops made prior to 2007.""

You might have some luck with the beta driver.
I don't have anything to test that idea on.
