How can I find out what chipset my video card is using without opening the case?

In Windows 7:

  1. Right-click the desktop and select Personalize.
  2. In the lower-left corner, click Display.
  3. Click Change display settings, and then click Advanced settings.

In Vista, right-click the desktop and select Personalize. Click Display Settings.

In XP, right-click the desktop and select Properties. Click Settings.

You may see the name of the card here. If you do, use that information to look up the specific chipset if it is not already identified. If you do not see the card name, click Advanced Settings orAdvanced, and then click the Adapter tab. These panels also receive information from the driver rather than the hardware’s BIOS, so the information may be inaccurate.
