I have a gateway MD2614u laptop. The video card is a ATI radeon hd 3200. running vista 64 bit.
When i go to the ati website to update my video driver I have a choice of notebook and the closest card to mine is mobility radeon hd 3200. If i choose integrated motherboard graphics my choice is radeon 3200 series. Which one is the right one? Does the hd part mean anything?

With laptops it's much better to get video drivers from the laptop maker's website (Gateway in this case) than using generic video drivers. I'd only get them somewhere else if the maker didn't have them for the operating system installed. When the maker quits updating them there's usually nothing to gain using newer versions on that laptop.

I would think that "mobility radeon hd 3200" would be right for a laptop. But I'd try to stay with Gateway's drivers.

Since you're on a laptop, the Mobility drivers should be for you. Ignore my first comment.

I was mistakenly assuming the integrated motherboard drivers applied to any integrated graphics chips when I said go with that.

For what its worth, Nvidia has less confusing naming schemes. :)
