Other identification methods

You can use other ways to identify the graphics product in your computer. We don't recommend these methods for beginners.

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

  • Right-click the desktop and select Graphics Properties. Navigate to the Options and Support tab. 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. As older computers start, they can display the name of the graphics product during the power-on self-test (POST). Press the Pause/Break key to pause POST and capture the product name.

Advanced identification methods
  1. Right-click the desktop and choose Properties.

  2. Click the Settings tab.
