Graphic drivers normally get frequent updates. Therefore, it is important to keep tabs on them as a player.

You can update your graphics drivers in 2 ways:

If there is a latest update, download it and install it to your PC. Make sure that the drivers you are newly downloading are compatible with the windows version on your PC.
  2. Automatic Driver Updates – For those who do not have the skills to keep your drivers up-to-date manually, this option can be used. You need to have “Driver Easy” for this. This app can look for new driver updates, check their compatibility, download and install them to you device automatically. You will only have to provide the internet connection to the machine for this to work. There will also be notifications on its recent activities for your reference.

How to get Driver Easy and Use it

  3. The window that appears will have a “Scan” button. Click on it. 
  4. After you run this scan, all the current problems with your drivers will be listed for you to view.
  5. Click on “Update All”. If this does not appear, you will have to upgrade to the Driver Easy Pro Version to get it. This will cost you only a refundable value of money. If you are not happy with its functioning, you can get your money back.
