Identifying a Video Card

Ever try to install video drivers and forget what kind of video card is installed? No more removing the case in order to find out. Just pull up a DOS Prompt and enter the following:

DC000:00 [ENTER]
DC000:70 [ENTER]

This will result in some identifying information about the video adapter installed in the machine. This information will vary among manufacturers and models, but it should present enough to figure out what''s there. This trick works under DOS, Win9x and Windows NT/2000.
