open up the PC case and look at the chips on the VGA card, or look for any wordings on the PCB board of the VGA card for any word that may indicate it's model/name

open up the casing and take a look inside.

if using a graphic card, sometimes they will display something just before or right after the bios RAM test screen when booting up.

and if it's a branded machine e.g. HP, IBM, Dell, get the model / serial number and check their websites for info.

... to add to that, once the model/type has been found, you can easily go to the manufacturer's website to download the necessary drivers.

This might work...

Start -> Windows Update

Sometimes it should work.

It should show you something on the screen as it boots. Note that down. Supply that piece of information here.

I might have thihs driver. Let me go back and take a look. This will take some time though as it is pretty old. Once I find it I will let you know ok.

on the graphics chip or on the boot up screen?

Is the graphics chip on the motherboard or there is a VGA card ?

Take a pic of the graphics chip, and the people here can help to identify it and search for the driver.

Try running Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information. Expand Components, Display folder and you should find out exactly what card you have. Then download latest driver from card maker's website.
