The best approach would be to use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)... it allows  you to get all sorts of behind-the-scences stuff in an abstracted way.

The code would look something like this:

        Dim wmi As ManagementClass
        Dim obj As ManagementObject
        Dim objs As ManagementObjectCollection

                    wmi = New ManagementClass("Win32_VideoController")
                    objs = wmi.GetInstances()
                    For Each obj In objs
                               msgbox("Driver version :" & obj("DriverVersion"))
                    next
