Please can someone help me find out who my video card manufacturer is. I have Sims2 for my daughter and the graphics keep freezing. Trouble shooter in the instructions tell me to update video card and also the chipset drivers. I can find the video card chipset is NVidia but can't figure out the actual video card manufacturer to download the latest driver.

Many Thanks
Boo

nvidia.com should have drivers which will be fine for you - remember, the latest drivers are not always the best.

Download them and instal them,if you have problems try a different driver,till you find one that works ok.

Thank guys, I did the Belarc thing and it did not seem to tell me the actual video card manufacturer (but then I am a bit of a noob with these techy details!), so I will go with the driver advice from y'all and try the chipset drivers... :o)
