    Are you sure you're looking under Device Manager? I'm not sure why it wouldn't be there.

    What does Everest say you have for Display? Find that, post what it is here and we'll help you find the driver. You could have also done this;

    Right click on your desktop, chose Properties in the drop down menu, click the Settings tab, Click the Advanced button at the bottom of this window, then in the next window, chose Adapter tab. What does it say there?

    What video card does it say you have? Everest will have links to manufacturer sites.

    Is this a new card? Did you install new drivers with this card? What operating system do you have?
