i just finished reformatting my computer and now i can't find my drivers disc, so i have to download them from dells website, but i am having trouble determining which ones i need, mainly for my videocard. i am running Windows XP Professional 2002 Service Pack 2 and i have already checked the device manager to try and figure out what video card i am using so i can download the appropriate drivers, there are only question marks, i have checked the boot menu and couldnt find it there... i may have been looking in the wrong places... my computer is a Dell GX620.

so i need help determining what video card i am using

and/or the drivers that this dell model needs. i haven't changed any of the stock hardware if that helps.

thanks a lot.

Looks like there are variations possible, so I suggest that you use SIW System Information for Windows - http://www.gtopala.com/ to acquire info about your system.

Or simply check the documentation for your purchase of said system.

Or supply the service tag info and use http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/...;l=en&s=dfh

Use the Service Tag Number at the last link Louis provided. The Service Tag Number is your key to the exact hardware of your particular Dell.

If you're confused by any of the results, you can post your Service Tag Number here and someone will help you.
