    dunno if graphics card is working ???
    « on: August 02, 2007, 09:27:22 PM »
    Is there any way that you can find out what kind of graphics card is in a computer ??
    All I know is that it is an AGP APOGEE graphics card (my Bro thinks its 512MB)
    I got a computer from my brother as he has upgraded to a new PC.The computer is only two years old and he does not have the exact spec of all components and does not have any of the original CD's(drivers)I have the montor plugged into the graphics card and the screen does not look any better than on-board graphics .
    I tried running the diagnostic tool "dxdiag" but the display devices shows nothing, all show N/a but the monitor.
    any assistance would be greatly appreciated
    many thanks in advance !!!!

      In the device manager it shows video controller highlited in yellow with a bold question mark but it does not have any drivers installed , it does'nt give the name of the hardware so I can't find the model of graphis  card zo I can go on-line to get a new driver
