Asus A7JC graphics issues

  1. Got a slight problem with my brothers laptop.

    Its a few years old now, its an Asus A7JC, with an ATi Mobility X1600 gfx card.

    Basically, it won't let me update graphics drivers. Says that the drivers can't be installed.

    "setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system."

    After a while of trying to do anything without the graphics drivers I get thin red lines down the screen and then it will reset.

    At the moment, it seems to be staying on in 800x600 but still can't update.

    Is the graphics card shot?

    Thanks in advance
