Video Card Problem
Hey guys, i can't seem to find a grahpics card on my comp 4 some reason. Can anybody tell me wat i can do to find out which one it is and try to install a driver for it? Thanks for any feedback.

Use this software to find out which Video card you have.

AIDA32 It extracts details of all components of the PC. It can display information on the screen, print it, or save it to file in various formats like HTML, CSV or XML.

It's possible your computer may not actually have a video card, as integrated video is a common feature in many motherboards, even those that support AGP slots as well.

Thanks for that Sami, i'm downloading it at the moment. William i'm pretty sure i dont have one of those because it will cost extra, which my dad wont buy 4 sure.:( When i start up my comp, it shows for like 2 seconds "NVIDIA GEFORCE2 MX400 BIOS VERSION 3.11.0076.12 . I think that is my graphics card, but it doesn't show anything at all in device manager or anywhere else.:(

Quick question, is there anything wrong with your display? Is there anything which needs fixing or are you just trying to find you card?
It appears you have a Savage card, not a bad choice, do you also have a tuner (tv) card installed? There were refrences to one, and that may be the reason for seeing the nVidia logo on start up.

I'm pretty sure i dont have a TV tuner. I would like to get my video card fixed and be able to see it normal in my device manager, and also i cannot play a lot of games because it doesn't recgnize a video card, and also the size of my desktop is small so that also affects it. Is there any way u or Smai can tell me exactly wat i need to do and download to get it fixed? Thanks man.

You have savage video card, you can download the drivers from here Legacy Software Archive.

I think this one is the most appropriate driver for your card and OS
