Determining the Video Card:
Before updating your Video Card driver, one must know which video card is installed on their computer. For this purpose, right click on your ‘My Computer’ icon, and select properties. Click on the ‘Device Manager’ icon in the ‘Hardware’ tab, and then click on the ‘+’ sign on ‘Display Adaptors’ tab. Note down the driver name on a notepad.
Searching and Downloading the New Driver:
It is recommended that one visits the official website of that particular device manufacturer. However, if one does not want to download it from the official website, which will eventually cost them a little, they can search the device driver’s name on google.com. Several free websites will offer you the services of downloading the drivers for free. Click on any of the websites, and follow instructions to download the driver. Save the file on the desktop of your computer.
Installing the New Downloaded Driver:
Right click on your ‘My Computer’ icon, and select properties. Click on the ‘Hardware’ tab, and then click the ‘Device Manager’ tab. Now, click on the ‘+’ sign at ‘Display Adaptors’ tab, and then right click on the listed device driver to remove it. After the previous version is removed, open the downloaded driver, and follow the instructions to install the new drivers. Restart your computer, and your Video Card drivers are now new and updated.
