Download and install Everest, which should provide you with the video card information you need; in most cases, a picture of the card will not enable anyone to identify it.

John,

I downloaded the everest as suggested.

you know when you look in device manager and you get a yellow question mark when a device isnt working? Well thats what my computer shows.

I find the card in everest, and it comes up with little::

Multimedia controller
PCI
5/9/0
device id : 1255-1330
device class-048- (multimedia controller)

So is there anything else you can suggest?

Thanks,
Gail

Feel free to email me the pics and i will look into it. Click on my name to find my email.

Were the details you gave printed on the circuit board of the video card or on one of the chips?
Often a video card can be identified from the chip manufacturer and numbers printed on the largest chip.

I am going to forward the picture....

Just so you know I got the numbers off the stickers that are ON the card.

The card has MANY chips on it, most are different. I do know that it had 4 or 5 Phillips chips on it.
