There are many G61's. What's the full model number? I'm always confused by this, not to sound like I'm picking on you, but how does a person know if a computer is priced well or not without knowing the specs? Call me crazy, but when I'm evaluating a computer for a friend or relative, you have to know all the details...processor, memory, hard drive size, video card, etc....in order to know if you are getting a good price or getting ripped off.

Anyway, mini-rant over. Speccy is a free program that will tell you all the important details.

Do you see your model number on this list?

Select a product or category from the list below - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Maybe if you can find your exact model number someone can look at your specs and be able to help you a bit easier

There's still no graphics card listed (you have the monitor specs in that slot), but since you have the full model number, all you have to do is get the latest video driver for your computer from HP's website. You should be able to tell quickly from your documentation or Device Manager if you have the Intel or the Nvidia card.
