You can try System Settings by clicking on it in the side bar

Once it open, you can click on Details and then Graphics

Or

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

spci | grep -i pci || lspci

then Scroll down to VGA compatible controller to determine the type of video card installed in the computer. Then type

sudo lshw

Then type

sudo lshw -html > hardware.html

To get an easier-to-read HTML version of the report
