Hello..can anyone tell me how to know what type of graphic card in your own dekstop? :thumbsup:


Well one way is to look at your screen when the computer is first booting up.

It will be the first white lettering on a black background (usually in the upper left corner of the screen) it might say Nvidia or ATI along with a version #

Another way depends on which operating system you have.

Windows XP: Click START

click on SETTINGS

Look for CONTROL PANEL click on control panel

Look for the SYSTEM icon (double click it)

Look for HARDWARE tab

click DEVICE MANAGER

Look for DISPLAY ADAPTERS click on the + to expand it.

Theres the information on your video card.


In Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Click START on the start menu is CONTROL PANEL click control panel.

Look for DEVICE MANAGER in the group of icons, click on device manager.

Look for DISPLAY ADAPTERS and click on the + to expand it. There is your display adapters information.

I do believe thats a integrated video card, you would have to purchase a dedicated video card. first step is to find out what sort of system you have so we can recomend a compatible card for your system and what you may need to upgrade to get it to work.
