OK, I read the thread Justin made, but that is for Vista. I have an XP :pi:

So yeah, anyone any idea on how to find out on XP?
Plus, if I can't manage to play the TRU demo with my current graphics card, has anyone got any recommended ones that will work and are also cheap?

Right mouse click, select PROPERTIES and then GRAPHICS tab.

Thanks, but when I click Properties, the tabs I get are just Themes, Desktop etc. When I go into the Display tab, it says:

Display monitor on Intel 82865G Graphics Controller.

That doesn't really sound like it =/

Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management. Click on the Device Manager in the left pane and open the + next to Display adapters in the right pane.

I did all that, and all I get is this again =/


Intel 82865G Graphics Controller.

It appears that you have an integrated graphics chip, not a graphics card.

EDIT: Um, ok, maybe not. In any event, that is your driver. What are you looking to do?
