How to Find a Video Card on Your Computer

Save

All computers need video cards so that the information processed by the computer can be sent to a monitor and viewed by the user. It's important to know exactly what kind of video card your computer has, especially if you plan on running PC games (some of them require better video cards to run properly). With the Windows operating system, the process of checking your video card is fast and simple.

  • Select the Windows symbol at the bottom-left corner of the screen to open the "Start" menu.

  • Select the "Control Panel" option in the "Start" menu.

  • Select the "Display" option in the "Control Panel" menu; information about your video card and drivers will appear. Write down all pertinent information and keep it in an easily accessible area.

Tips & Warnings

  • These steps will also work with Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows 2000. Windows Vista offers a much simpler way to check your video card: Simply right-click on your desktop and select "Graphics Properties" from the dropdown menu.
