Help With V5200 Drivers and OSD

#1 Post by nightninja96 » Sun Aug 04, 2019 6:28 pm

Hello, I just installed Windows 7 X64 and got most of the drivers installed. However, I cannot find the On Screen Display driver for my OS. Also, the only V5200 drivers I can find are for Windows 10 and they won’t work... I have heard rumors about installing ATI X1600 which apparently improve gaming performance. Not too sure what to do.
Thanks for the help in advance :D

You need a Vista driver for V5200, which is the same across the board for all the ATi GPUs found in T60.

As for OSD, Power Manager, Hotkeys and possibly Access Connections.

Good luck.

After couple of updates made by Lenovo stock OSD drivers do not display brightness change anymore. PM me for a link to working drivers.

You need to mod the drivers a bit; I still should have the package file if needed. There is a big difference between both drivers..

Back in 2012/3 I never did get those Mobility Modder ATi Catalyst drivers to work on my Z61p v5200 equipped machines, and so I have stuck with the standard Vista drivers with Windows 7. Not sure with the modded drivers what I did wrong or neglected to do, but it just ignored the install and left it with VGA drivers or something.
Z61p x3 (C2D T7600, 3GB, 500GB SSD, BCM70015, Advanced Dock x1, Mini Dock x2)
W520 (C2Q i7-2720QM, 8GB, 60GB SSD)
X61 (C2D T7500, 3GB, 250GB SSD, BCM70015)
X61s (2GB, 120GB SSD)
T43p (P M 760, 2GB, IBM Port Replicator II)
G41 (P4 3.46GHz, 2GB, 40GB)

Can't remind myself what I did, but got those perfectly working :)

And boy, the difference in gaming performance on my T60p was huge!
