    Let's see if Windows will identify it and can then see what can be found..
    • Connect the card. Reboot
    • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
    • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
    • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post

    Before looking for things by hand..
    1) Try the link kimsland provided. See if it might find the drivers for you
    2) If not, open device manager, rt click the graphics adapter Update Driver
    3) If still a problem let us know

    this scan tool can I take it to a computer that does not have internet - as the video card I am requiring about here is on a computputer that has no internet

    OK. Looks like it is a NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT. What operating system are you running?

    As an aside to Kimsland....

    So for this case
    1. PCI - is the enumerator
    2. PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0421&SUBSYS_034F1043&REV_A1 is the Hardware ID
    3. PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0421&SUBSYS_034F1043&REV_A1\4&28711406&0&0008
      is the Device Instance ID
    Also, if you look at Hardware IDs in Device Manager (rt click Properties, Details tab, select Hardware IDs in the pulldown)
    > Every device has one (or more) Hardware IDs listed
    > The ID appearing at the very top of the list is, by definition, the Device ID
