I come across the same problem over and over. I working on computer that is remote and it is missing graphics card drivers. Just has some default drivers that have limited resolution.

I would like to install program that will read the chipset on graphics card and tell me the values so I can go on manufacturer website and download the appropriate drivers.

Windows 7 or Windows XP application would do, if you know about any.

This is what GPUZ is giving me (the rest of the tabs are pretty much empty): enter image description here

And CPUZ is giving this:

And Belarc Advisor is no better.

Try GPU-Z instead, or Belarc Advisor

You can use CPUZ to tell what graphics card/chipset is installed. Although I'm not sure if it uses the driver to do this, however it's such a small program that it's at least worth trying.

That was first thing I tried. It did work just showed me Standard VGA Adapter. – Mat Banik Feb 16 '11 at 0:51
Sorry @Mat Banik that was my best guess... You should probably include what you have tried in the question so you don't get more answers like this. – Not Kyle stop stalking me Feb 16 '11 at 0:53
