View Full Version : How do I determine what video card I have?

I get this message: "GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem"

I've read that I probably need to update my video card drivers, but I don't know what kind of video card I have. Can XP do it automatically?

Thanks for any help.

Click, start, run, type in 'dxdiag' (without the quotes). and click the display tab. Next to Device, it will say Name. Your video card is listed there.
