Help Identifing Graphics Card and Locating Display Driver

by Mobius_1 / July 25, 2005 4:03 PM PDT

Operating System: Windows XP
Model Nomber:PCV-RX755

I need help identifying my graphics card and finding a new display driver for it. How can I view the card type and update the display driver? I believe it is called an SiS 650_740, but I was told all graphics cards begin with Nvidia or ATX or another brand. If this IS a graphics card, where can I find a new display driver for it?

It states nothing about any graphics cards. It should be under display, right?

SiS 650_740 [Display adapter]
Sony HMD-A240 [Monitor] (16.1"vis, s/n 8111253, August 2002)

Click on the link below and work through the "IGP Graphics Drivers" selections to find your driver....OR simply look in the "Top Downloads" section to see the newest "SiS UniVGA3 Graphics Driver" link.

Hope this helps.

is Everest. It gets very specific about your PC hardware.

Install it and look at Display, Windows video. The graphics adapter will be listed along with links to the web site.

You may have an integrated video adapter, one that is on the mother board. This will be listed also.

Why is it that you need a new driver for it?

Whoever told you all video cards have Nvidia or ATI chipsets is a moron.

My comment. Is this a Sony?

If so, I've learned to stick with their driver offering since they tend to modify the motherboard/chip interface so it's rare to see the SIS and other drivers work.

Check the Sony site for latest drivers for that machine.
