Windows 7: Cannot find video device model.


24 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional (x64/SP1) /Linux Mint 16
 
 
Cannot find video device model.

Hi,

I cannot find my device model number at all. It is a graphics chip and I have searched and searched but found nothing. It is an old Packard bell Imedia computer and cannot find the model number. (I searched the serial number, found nothing)

AMD ATHLON XP 3000+ (2.16ghz)
80GB ATA HDD
DVD RW Drive *NEC*
300w (or more?) psu
512mb RAM (SDRAM?)
I tried a driver scanner, nothing. Anyone help?

From what little I can find on the subject it would appear to have a via chipset as well as graphics chip
VIA UniChrome Shared video memory
to be specific.
Information on these imedia machines is basically non existent.
Since it's a basically unheard of graphics chip, I would guess this may be the right path, and would explain the driver utility being unable to identify it.

I think you may be dealing with a machine that more than likely can only run win xp.
