Along time ago, my computer got fried, and I had to replace almost everything in it, including my Video Card. I had a local Computer Repair place fix it, but I never learned what video card (if any) they put in. How would I figure out what kind of Video Card I have?

Right click on the desktop on an open space, goto properties. Then goto the settings tab.

It will say Display: and will list what card you have right there.

I'm not THAT stupid. Its blank. Under Device Manger, it says, "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)" and has a little riddle. I used that program, and under Display -> PCI/APG Video it says "VIA/S3G UniChrome" Is that my graphics card?

are you sure they put a graphics card back in? maybe your running onboard video. if your not sure, open up your case and see if theres anything plugged into the APG or PCI slot.

Well excuse me, just trying to give free help.

Via sg3 is onboard video which is crappy.
