Sound and graphics cards - May 19th 2010, 05:49 PM

I am getting some film editing software and I need to check my laptop "specs" before getting it. The only things I have no idea how to find/check are the sound and graphics cards ... Any ideas how I can find out which ones I have / how good they are?

Start>Run> type in: dxdiag
A little window will pop up and tell you all your computer specs.

It's a little box at the bottom of the start menu (labelled as a search box I think). Just type run, enter, dxdiag, enter.

Though I find it odd that you need to check your specs. All sound cards are pretty much the same nowadays, and you don't need a decent graphics card - it's mainly the processor that I'd be worried about.
