Next, download and install it by following the step by step instructions.

You’ll need average to intermediate level computer skills to use this method.

Once you have the details you can search the manufacturers website for your drivers and, if available, download and install these drivers.

If you are unsure of whether or not you need to update your Drivers, or indeed which Drivers may need to be updated, you can run a Drivers scan using a driver update tool (you will need to pay to register this tool but usually the Drivers scan is free).

To fix your Drivers problems you will need to know the particular model of the Video Graphics device you are having problems with (see instructions above).If you have had recent power outages, viruses, or other computer problems, it is possible that the drivers have become damaged or corrupted and need to be reinstalled.Follow the instructions below to update to the correct driver for your operating system.An old or incompatible driver can cause frequent crashes, screen flickering or even lower than expected screen resolution.

If you still have the disk that came with your card, it may contain drivers, but first check to make sure that they support your current version of Windows before installing them.This is really only necessary when either your Driver is very outdated, has become corrupt or often when you update to a new Operating System.
