    hi done that but cant see anything to do with graphics card, does that mean there isnt one?

    you sure ? the 3rd tab, should be labeled display. the graphics card is described under device in the top left

    Yeah, thats it. On board graphics, no dedicated card. If the buyer was asking about graphics card he he may not be interested. Just a heads up.

    if thats what it says next to name under device then yes. the buyer will probably be interested in the approx total memory as well

    Not exactly, that's the motherboard chipset. It does come with built in graphics (the X3100) and if DXDiag is showing that it's likely to be using that rather than a seperate graphics card.

    ]GPU-Z might be your best bet, I don't know what it's laptop graphics card support is like though.

    No, that's the chipset the motherboard uses.



    which also has a integrated GPU. Unless there is a dedicated one as well, but dxdiag should show that.
