How can I update my video card drivers?

A Video Card Driver is another term for software that communicates between your Operating System  and your computer hardware (e.g. the video card itself). It is important to have the most up-to-date drivers for your computer's hardware to ensure that it functions correctly.

To verify you have the latest drivers, please refer to the computer manufacturer's website and locate the support section. Since we have no way to determine what hardware you have installed, or what drivers are the most current, we won't be able to assist with this update.

 

Here's how to locate the type of video card in your machine and the date of installation:

Windows XP

1. Click on Start and then Run. In the box that appears type dxdiag.

2. Click Yes on the WHQL certificates message.

3.  Open the header labelled Display Device.  You will find all of your pertinent driver information there.

 

Windows 7

1. Click on the Start icon  and in the box that appears (that says Search Programs and Files) type dxdiag.
