right click on my computer and click properties, from the dialogue click on the hardware tab, when the device manager comes up, look for the diplay adaptor entry and expand it, the name of your graphics card should be there.

sorry, that last instruction is wrong for win 98, but should still get you there

right found that (I think)it says

Inter(R)810 Chipset Graphics Driver 4.11.01.2555

Ok that basically means you have integrated graphics rather than an add-on card. Do you have the driver disk that came with the pc when you bought it new?

  JonnyTub 11:06 20 Oct 04

Also is this a laptop?

yep got all the original disks dont know where/which the driver disk will be though! sorry I did warn you everything would have to be simple bit like me really.
