However, you can generally get updated graphics drivers from your graphics hardware manufacturer’s website: You will have to select the exact model of your computer’s graphics card, which is displayed in the Device Manager window.

For assistance with the installation of a graphics driver, contact the manufacturer of the computer or the manufacturer of the computer's video adapter.

To identify the manufacturer and model of the computer's video adapter or chipset, use the Direct X Diagnostic Tool included with Windows 8, Windows 7, and Vista.
