Other methods of identification

There are other ways you can use to identify the graphics product in your computer. However, these are not recommended for the novice user.

  • Run the Intel® System Identification Utility. This utility automatically identifies the computer components, operating system, and driver versions you have on your computer.

  • Right-click the desktop and select Graphics Properties. Navigate to the Options and Support tab, and look under the Information Center submenu for Accelerator In Use.

  • Go to the Device Manager (Start > Control Panel > Device Manager) and find the Intel® product listed under Display Adapters.

  • Run dxdiag (Start > Run > dxdiag) and observe the Name and Version listed under the display sections.

  • Use the POST screen message. Older computers may display the name of the graphics product during the power on self test (POST) as the computer boots up. Press the Pause/Break key to pause POST and capture the product name.
