I installed a "new" video card that a friend gave to me, but he didn't give me a driver disc. He says that it is an ATI video card but I can find no markings on it to indicate the manufacturer. The new hardware installation wizard does not show what video card it is and my device manager does not show what it is either. Is there a website or something I can download that will detect what kind of video card this is or do I have to download driver sets from various companies until I find something that works?

Thanks in advance.

I've just found that the ATI website has changed and you are required to register to download drivers now. I DLed a driver from them about two weeks ago, that is how recent the change is. Unfortunately many of the ATI drivers aren't supported by Windows and you have to get them from another source.
