Hello,
I connect to several remote computers for video recording of cable TV. I would like to replace the graphics card in my remote computers. How can I find out which type of slot my graphics card is in "remotely". I connect via LogMeIn.com. I need to determine which type of card will be compatible before I arrive on site for the change.
Thanks!

Does it give you full access? Like a virtual desktop for that computer?

inside of the logmein window for the relevent computer...
Start>>Run>>type "dxdiag" >>hit enter>>Click on Display.

Are you recording the logmein window or just using the remote desktop to have the computer record it's source? I never had a high res screen going through logmein.

IMO the situation is not wherein you need a specific type of card for your purpose.. Even onboard video will do..

Oh well.. Completely misunderstood your query.. Sorry about that.. Running 'dxdiag' , as has been mentioned by others, should get it done for you..

Can you not run GPUz or CPUz remotely?
