How to check what graphic card is there on my system ?
  

hie,

I think I am facing some problems with my graphic card and I need to find information about it but the problem is, I don't know which graphic card is there in my system. Can I find all the information about my graphic card without opening the cabinet and taking it out. Can anybody please help me, how can I find which graphic card is there on my system ?

thanks

The easiest way to find out the information of your graphic card on Windows operating system.

Option - 1
On your Desktop, right-click on your background and click Properties.
Click on Settings >> under "Display" -- the model of your graphic card is mentioned.

Option - 2
My Computer >> Right-click >> select Properties
Select the "Hardware" tab >> under Device Manager -- click on Device Manager tab.
Scroll down to Screen card and click the + and get the required info.
Note - Similarly, you can find out ALL your system settings

Try doing this ::


Navigate through the following --
Start --- Control Panel --- System --- Hardware tab --- Device Manager --- Display Adapters.

Find the model of your video card and go to the original site to find more information about your graphic card model.

If graphics card drivers are properly installed :

- go to Start
- select Run
- type "dxdiag".
This will show you information about your computer as well as the type of your video card. You can also get this information from the device manager.

If graphics card drivers are not properly installed :

- Shutdown and unplug your computer system.
- Open the outer casing.
- Remove the graphics card carefully.
- Read the model number off the card.
- Replace the graphics card.
- Close the casing.
- Power up the computer.
- Look on the manufacturer's website for the exact name of the hardware
