okay I don't have a graphics or video card installed to my pc. or I dont know what it is. My motherboard is a Asus A7v8x. I tried running dxdiag but it doesn't display graphics card info. Please help! Any response is welcomed. This is a noob graphic/web designer. I have moderate understanding of hardware/software tech.

You will have a graphics card, or onboard graphics chip of some sort or nothing will be displayed on screen.

Try this:

1) Start -> Right-click on My Computer -> Properties.
2) Click the Hardware tab, then click Device Manager.
3) Click the '+' sign next to Display, and there's the name of your graphics device.

If you go to properties, in the settings tab click advanced the display info should be there too (for xp anyway).

Looks like you're missing some drivers there. The question mark next to your AGP controller, which means your PC will be using a default graphics driver and won't have a clue what graphics card you've got, no matter how hard you try and look.

I'm pretty sure its on board with these but you can find out by looking at the back of your PC, if your monitor plugs into one of the many slats in the back then its separate, if it plugs into the panel where your mouse, keyboard, USB, Parallel, all that stuff is then its on board.

If its separate then you need to take off the side of your computer and take a look at the card sticking out of your motherboard which your monitor plugs into, it 'should' be written on it what it is.

If it's on board type into Google "Asus A7v8x graphics driver" http://www.driverfiles.net/USB/ASUS/asus-a7v8x-x/download/page,sh,24102,172,14,.html think this would probably be it. Install it then do what deadstar says and you'll find out what it is but it'll be pretty pants.

Come to think of it, I have the same board in a box next to me. Uncanny.

It's got a 'VIA UniChrome Graphics' chip. I think Andy put it right: pretty pants. I managed to get Quake III running on it a few years ago with a Duron 1300 processor and 256MB RAM, but it was sweating.


EDIT: Here's the full driver list: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A7V8X-MX%20SE
