Look in Device Manager and click on Display Adapter. You are looking for a name brand. Another way is to look inside the machine and see if there is a physical card that the monitor cable is hooked to. The device showing in Device Manager will tell us what you got                Mrbreeze

Dcurtis, Go to Start,Programs,Accessories,System Tools,System Information. Click on it and it opens a box. In that box click the plus sign beside Components. Go to Displat and click it, give it a moment then read the screen on the right. What does the first line say?

I can follow all the wya to system tools, there is non system information there (I forgot to mention that I am using Win 95).  I checked the Device Manager, but I don't know what I am looking for.  Do I look for a brand name something, or do I look for a particular setting?

Sorry, I am on my machine at work.  Was wondering for my home machine.  Am checking out a game (Falcon 4.0) and was wondering if I had a graphics card, and didn't know how to check (bought it second hand).  I will check and post the answer tomorrow if you want.
