Go in Device Manager, Display Adapter, video card’s properties, Driver Tab. There you should have the driver version (ie: NVidia 2832]. Then you can check on your card’s homepage for a new driver if any :wink:

no, it doesn’t say there…

What OS are you using? With more info we might be able to pinpoint the location of the desired info.

You can find that there at least in win98, Me, XP. If it is any other os you use pls let us know :wink:

Device manager is reffered as system devices in win98, Me, though, so you should keep that in mind. In both cases, one way of getting there is right clicking on my computer and chosing properties.

i am running win 98se amd it refers to device manager??

any way here is exactly what it says on the dispaly adapter’s driver tab:

NVIDA GeForce3 Ti 200

Provider: NVIDA
Date: 9-14-2001

to view details about the driver…

Does this therefore seem weird to you??

You forgot to click on ‘driver file details’, that could give you some supplementary information.

On my card I have an extra tab in the Display Properties window (clicking on the “advanced” button) that you normally access by right-clicking on the desktop.
