Most of the N3000 series have the Trident Cyberblade graphics controller

IBM driver: (works with any cyberblade)
http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/215373/Trident-CyberBlade-Video-Driver.html
note: that there are MANY revisions/versions of the cyberblade line, you need to determine which your laptop has.
the method below will id any video chipset used in a system.

So how do you find out what video controller you do have without yanking the cover off your machine?
And what if it's a laptop computer?
Yanking the cover off is not a convenient or wise option to take in that case (for most of us).
The answer, is to use Debug.
Open a command prompt (this works for all versions of Windows except NT3.51 and earlier) and type Debug.

If the system complains that it can't find debug, you're probably on some variant of Windows 95 or later.

In that case, be sure to specify c:\windows\command\debug.

You'll be greeted by Debug's ultra uninformative prompt which is a meager minus sign (-).

At the prompt, type the following, then hit Enter.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: this can be done in windows's DOS BOX or by a normal boot floppy that has the DEBUG command

copied to the disk.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
d C000:0010
You should get output similar to the following:
C000:0010 44 45 4F 20 0D 00 00 00-F4 00 AE 12 00 00 49 42 DEO ..........IB

Type d at the prompt and press Enter again. Here's the output:

And then type d and press Enter one more time to get this output:

As you can see, output reads in this order across the screen:
Memory Location
?that's the part that looks like C000:0010
What's in the memory at that location?All those Hex combinations like 49 41 ?
The ASCI translation of those Hex values?the part that looks like words! that's what.

Most video cards will have their BIOS signature showing in the first block of output.

Some will start later in memory and still others,

like the NVIDIA card in this laptop will have the rest of the information in the 3rd block.

The character, d, to Debug, means Dump Memory and that's precisely what it's doing here.

So, reading the above information, what kind of video card is in this computer?

There it is at the end of the second memory block dump and most of the 3rd dump:
NVIDIA GeForce2 GO with BIOS revision 3.11.01.44

To Quit either simply power off (if in real dos) or if in a dos box close the box

and ignore the msg about will loose unsave d data
or simply just type the letter Q (for quit) at the " - " prompt and press ENTER

to stop the debug program and this will return you to a normal prompt.

Now you know that all you've got to do is go download drivers for an NVIDIA GeForce2Go video card

and any Flash BIOS revisions to get things up to date and finally move to a nicer screen resolution!
Windows Device Manager does a good job of telling you about your Display Adapter most of the time.

But it's always telling you only which driver it has loaded

and it never tells you exactly what's in your system unless you have precisely the right driver loaded.

Now you know how to find out for sure what driver you should be using by using the Debug command.
