You need to follow these steps to see your video card properties.

  • Go to Start and then click on RUN.
  • In RUN menu type dxdiag and then press ENTER.
  • A new window will be in front of you. You need to go to DISPLAY and then here you can see you video card configurations.

Also you can take tests to see that your video card is working properly.

The second way to check this is by going to BIOS settings it can be accessed by pressing F8 key several times when booting and it will take you to BIOS settings.

In different computers the key may be different but in most cases it is F8. You can check your system key which comes on your screen when booting. Once you have BIOS settings you can also check the video card settings. I hope it will work fine.

If you want to know something about your video card, the easiest is to use Microsoft’s own DxDiag which can be launched by running the command without quotes “dxdiag.exe” or “dxdiag” in the command prompt. The DxDiag executable is located in “C:\WINDOWS\system32”. DxDiag is the short term for “DirectX Diagnostic Tool”.

It is a diagnostics tool used to test the Microsoft DirectX functionality as well as troubleshoot video or audio related hardware problems. It collects information about devices to help troubleshoot problems with DirectX sound and video.

To try DxDiag, press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run dialog then type without quotes “dxdiag” then hit Enter. When the tool is finished scanning the system, go to “Display” tab to see the information about your video card.

It lists the name of the video card, the chip type, amount of video RAM, your current screen resolution, and the name or brand of the monitor you are using as well the driver of the video card. Another way of checking the details about your video card is to use the video card software. Another way is to use CPU-Z.

Download the latest CPU-Z and run it. It doesn’t require installation and runs out-of-the-box. You can check the details about your video card on the “Graphics” tab of CPU-Z.
