Press the Windows key and R simultaneously, and in the prompt box enter devmgmt.msc.  Alternatively, enter devmgmt.msc in the search box.  Select Run as Administrator.

In the Device Manager window, click under Display Adapters to see what is installed in your system.

Quite suitable for video playback, I would think.  At any rate there's no way to upgrade video adapters in most laptops, so what you have is what you have.

if you right click on the desktop, you should find the Nvidia control panel application. This will provide you additional information about your vice card in terms of memory etc.

if it shows Intel or AMD/ATI,  then again, details are provided within their applications to show you more details.

Another way to do this would be to run dxdiag from a command prompt (Windows).

Various utilities exist such as SiSoft Sandra which will provide a more comprehensive report of your laptops hardware such as CPU, chipset, memory module configuration, storage configuration etc.
