Got an older Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Laptop with Wins 7 Ultimate - serial YSNG013084

Have downloaded stuff from the Intel website, but it says it is incompatible

Unfortunately, the Intel 855GM isn't supported under Windows 7 therefore there is no driver for it. There was however limited support for it in Vista with both Microsoft and Intel supplied XDDM drivers so there's some hope yet.
I've had some success on Dell Latitude D505's with this graphics chipset - this involves editing the Standard VGA driver (so that windows doesn't see this as a "better" driver than the one I had installed) and installing a Vista driver.
Here are 2 guides which may (or may not) help you. The first link is the guide I've used which I've had success with. The second guide looks like it might work also but requires a copy of Vista in order to extract the driver.

If it's as old as a D505 then is it powerful enough to run 7 well??

I tried the first one
It said it was unsuccessful and now I have lost the Display line in Device Manager
I need it back as I have found the Win2000 folder and would like to "update" driver at this location

Well, in the case of D505's, as long as they have the max 2GB RAM and given a large-ish 5400rpm hd (and you can justify the cost of the upgrades which most peeps won't), they'll run 7 well enough for those users who don't do anything too strenuous on them and extends the life until we can afford to replace them.

I'm sorry it didn't work. I've managed to do this several times successfully so I'm not sure what has happened in your case. At this point, it might be worth running System Restore to put the Laptop back to the state it was beforehand and maybe trying again?

Had the same thing in an old HP the standard vga driver gives a reasonable image at the correct resolution but I wouldn't want to do anything taxing with it.
