Download either:
Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit

SIW:
SIW | System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala

or Everest:
Lavalys - Comprehensive IT Security and Management

Any or all of these three will tell you what components you have inside your PC.

CPU-Z is for your CPU not your GPU (video card).

CPU-Z is only useful for determining your CPU / Ram / mobo.

Those three I posted will show you everything inside your PC.

Then you have no choice. Roll back to XP, or install XP on a different partition. See here; Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

That's because it's getting the information from the default windows VGA driver and not the device itself.

What does it show under "Devices>display adapters"

and "Video"

Lastly, have you tried installing either Nvidia or ATI drivers.

If you have an older card, then I suggest you download an older driver first. The drivers available in Windows Update may not support your older video card and that is why it is using the default VGA driver.

Hi DanR, as someone suggested earlier, if you have an XP install CD then it may help you discover your Video Adapter (make/model). It could be worth the suggestion of dual booting XP with 7 as you can run both. This option does save any re-formatting you would have to do, plus you can format the XP partition again from withing 7 once XP has identified your drivers.
