ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M series driver

I'm having a problem running my kde on 1280x800 resolution (slackware). I think this is because I'm missing the driver. I tried installing drivers but I think they whern't the right ones. If anyone knows which drivers are for the "ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M series", then please help me!

Thanks in advance

RE: ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M series driver

Which driver are you using now?? If it's the default slackware vesa driver, try changing to the fglrx provided by ati. and download the latest driver package from them. It's a fairly simple installer, and aticonfig gives tons of options from the CLI
