    I am using windows XP and I want to update my video card driver. I do not have the original CD to go with the card as it came preinstalled. I have noted the name of the video driver and gone to their site but then get lost looking for the update as it is far too technical for me and there are many drivers. Is there anyway that Windows XP will automatically look for drivers for me (like it does with Microsoft updates).
    Thanks!!

    MaMort,

    Welcome to TSG.

    If you download and run Everest Home Edition , you will be able to find the make and model #'s for your Video card. Everest lists it under Display/GPU, with links to the Manufacturer.
