lspci showing wrong vga card


I know i have a Mobility Radeon 9200 on my laptop, but when i lspci, i get

Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R250 Lf [Radeon Mobility 9000 M9] (rev 01)
I wonder if that's normal or not...

I'm telling you that you've been cornholed, backdoored, led astray, hoodwinked, bamboozled, and just generally sandpaper drygrit screwed. But, I thought you'd have read that between the lines... maybe not.

I did, but i just can't believe it...

Even the updates on HP's site refers to this card as a 9200, the sticker says its 9200, back in the old WinXP age, it said it was a 9200 all teh reviews say its a 9200... except for lspci
