Windows 7: need a little info about my graphics card

need a little info about my graphics card

I am using Dell Vostro 1015, I would like to know what graphics I have. I am using W7 Ultimate 32bit.

when I entered "DxDiag" in the search in windows, and opened up the Directx Diagnostics tool, I didn't see anything about graphics over there.

My cousins are coming home, they might want to play games, so I would like to know if its possible or not (based on whether I have some sort of graphics card or not)

i believe your machine has an intel 4500mhd graphics chip, which isn't suitable for modern 3D gaming, i'm afraid.

in dxdiag, look at the display tab - does it say something like intel 4500 (where i have highlighted)?

According to the results for that GPU here,

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD (GMA X4500MHD) - Notebookcheck.net Tech

don't think you'll be playing much of anything at what would be considered close to playable frame rates.

According to laptop specification, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500MHD is the graphic card. You need to install the updated and original drivers. Sometimes their is no need to install drivers manually because the windows install it automatically but it would be be better to download and install the drivers for graphic card.
