Card detection software?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is there a utility out there that can recognize a video card without the drivers installed? I do not know what video card is installed and I need that info to get drivers. I had to reformat the HD on my rig at work and the guys here have done a less than spectacular job keeping their documentation and resource disks organized for each machine so I have no way to tell what's in it without cracking the case and that is something I would rather not have to do...it will freak the boss out if he sees me doing it.

This one helped me out today.

Thanks guys.

I used the debug way to do it, but it was a little more difficult than what you got.

Mine wound up being a Radeon X1650
