    On the start menu goto Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager and you can see a list of cards and their drivers. You can also run some basic tests by double clicking an item and "Troubleshoot".

    You can also download (freeware) Everest Free from: http://www.lavalys.com
    which will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about your hardware.
