    Download Everest
    OR go to Control Pannel
    Then Systems
    Then Hardware
    Then Device Manager
    And it will be under display.

    Right click on desktop - properties - settings. That is the fastest way.

    the easiest way would be start > run. then type 'msinfo32' within the run dialog box. also it has complete information about your system not only your hardware devices. hope that helped.

    You can also go to start> run> dxdiag

    It gives a comprehensive report

    Your way will show more "advanced" system info but the easiest method would be the way ikovac suggestion, right click on the desktop and goto "Settings". Three steps and done. This will show you the display adaptor you are using without having to dig to far into system info/properties.
