There should be a service tag on the computer. You can got to Dell's site and enter that # and it will tell you what hardware is included in that particular unit. You can normally download the driver's from their site.

You may want to check the video card manufacturer's site for the most current driver.

The service tag is normally a 6 or 7 digit code.
