How do I determine the make and model of a graphics card installed in a Dell Desktop?

Belarc Advisor doesn't identify anything, and the model, a Dell Optiplex 780, has 5 different models to choose driver downloads for on their website.

  • Thanks. It's hard to tell which downlink is an advertisement for some other driver utility, and which link is the HWINFO program. It did identify the model which I had just installed drivers for (as a guess), so I hope it is not reading software, but hardware.

Follow this link. This will give you a prompt command to type in to get your graphic card details.

  • Thanks. I might have to get C3-PO or R2-D2 to decipher the output. :P

  • The output is simply 00IBM VGA Compatible BIOS. Are you sure it is not identifying the software?
