How is it possible to determine which graphic driver to install for newly installed Windows 7? There's no information about which graphic device in Device manager. Is there any software to determine which graphic card I have and which driver I need to install?

The most definitive way to check is one of the following:

If it is an ATI or NVIDIA card, you can use TechPowerUp's GPU-Z.

If it is a desktop with onboard graphics, you can check the model number of the motherboard to find out which chipset it is using.

If it is a laptop and you are unsure, you can cross reference the model number on the underside with the specifications listed on the manufacturer website.
