The most obvious places to look would be in the computer's manual
or on the computer manufacturer's web site. Failing that:

1) Start > Run > MSinfo32.exe.

2) Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Information

3) Start > Run > DXDiag.exe.

4) Right-click My Computer > Manage > Device Manager.

5) If none of the built-in tools provide the information you want, you
can use these utilities to help determine the answer to your question:

You could open the case and see what it has. Perhaps, as a beginner you
might not be comfortable doing that.
You could download Belarc and get a report. (www.Belarc.com).
