I woudl install the omegadrivers from the beginning, to be honest
If they fail, I would run driver cleaner one more time, then look at his original driver cd and find the original chipset drivers and then original drivers
I can tell you that the the ati chipset that came with this laptop is a real stinker. I had a laptop not too long ago and I it was a real bear to get it to load....seems, I dropped into safe mode, wiped the drivers with drivecleaner, then installed the chipset drivers then the videodrivers to get it up and running again
seems like the omega's may be the way to go

The original drivers are almost always the best(either that or the next couple), WoW lags not because of an error just that thats a slow video card and its integrated(thats the thing about laptops they are fundamentally not designed to game).
I would use the originals as if i remember the ATI mobility catalyst series drivers wasnt what they used to use for the older integrated like yours its for the newer ones mostly. Try the omegas or the originals, and patch back WoW if its got worse since you patched the game, patches are fine but you should only get them if you have a problem as they usually open up new problems themselves for some people.

yes i used the original drivers, but now a problem has come up and so i looked for a solution. the catalyst drivers were supposed to fix the problem for the 9800 and so i was hoping it would do the same for me. i needed to try something.
now its onto omega, thanks for the advice and info. ill put them on now

thankyou guys for all your assisstance and guidance, this site does so much for so many people.
you should remember the omega drivers as an alternative. it was built by a gamer for gamers i htink, as a hobby, based on the drivers made by the manufacturers (ie ATI catalyst drivers).
