a quick and easy way would be to check device manager. To open it, click the "my computer" icon on the start menu. on the left side of the window that appears is a link saying "view system information", click it. on the window that just appears, click the hardware tab, then click device manager. Look under "display adapters" to find out what kind of graphics you have. if nothing is listed, or you don't see a "display adapters" you have basic onboard video.

or
start -> run -> dxdiag

and it's located on the back of the computer, attached to the back panel and the mobo. If there are many cards, then it's probably the biggest one and the on which is on the top. But do the dxdiag and you will know what kind of vid card you have.
