Need the URL to download the correct video drivers

I need the URL to download the correct video drivers for the video card shown in the attached screenshots.

The video card has these numbers on it: v. 249 and N1996.

It is an AGP desktop video card.

Other than that, it doesn't have any other useful information that I can find.

I have attached the screenshot of the video card's details tab.

I know that there is a way of doing a Google search based upon these numbers to determine exactly which driver needs to be downloaded.

Please provide me with the URL address that I need to go to in order to download the correct Windows XP SP 3 drivers for this video card.

Or, please provide me with the manufacturer name and model number of the drivers that I need to download.

If any further information is needed, please let me know.

No - I can't find a match - however there are a limited number of ATI drivers - the latest drivers identify the card automatically so its worth downloading and trying to install - it will complain it it cant find a compatible card

ATI Radeon HD 6450
But the normal Radeon Catalyst drivers should work for it.
Make sure you have the correct motherboard drivers installed before installing the graphics drivers.

MASQUERAID,

Please let me know how you were able to determine that this graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 6450
so that in the future I will know how to look the manufacturer and model numbers of drivers based upon the device driver details tab.

Try http://www.pcidatabase.com with the vendor and device codes.
A little further work with Google on the rest of the device ID suggests that it's built on an MSI board and was shipped as part of a Lenovo OEM build - that's less precise but it would be nice to know if it matches the card in your hand (!)

You seen to have the answer - the standard AMD Catalyst driver supports a range of AMD cards - including yours.

I checked with the user who gave me this video card and he confirmed that he did pull it from a Windows 7 64-bit OS Lenovo desktop.

We would now like to use this AGP video card within a Windows XP desktop.

Does anyone know if ATI provides Windows XP 32-bit drivers for this video card?
