Before you update your Graphics card driver, you need to know which graphics card is installed in your computer. You can use a simple diagnostic program called dxdiag to determine your computer's hardware, operating system, and graphics card.
To use the dxdiag program:
1) Select Start.
2) Choose Run. (If running Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator)
3) Type dxdiag in the box and click "OK."
If a message pops up, click Yes to the prompt, and the program will begin running.
4) Select the Display 1 tab.The Name listed under the Device section is the name of your graphics card.
If you have a laptop, we suggest visiting the laptop manufacturer's website (Dell, Toshiba, Sony, etc.) to get the most recent driver. Laptops may have special modified conditions that require a custom driver. It is not recommended installing a driver from the video card manufacturer if using a laptop.
If you are using a desktop computer you would need to visit the graphics card manufacturer's website to download the latest driver.
Listed below are a few common graphics cards and links to download their drivers:
Instructions are available on the manufacturer's website on how to properly remove (if needed), and install the new graphics driver.
