Read This:  PC manufacturers are always trying to simplify this for their customers.  They know you hate this.  These locations below are the website locations where the vendors keep all updates for drivers for their computers, so you may need to go thru an automated “update drivers” process.  It will never hurt you to update but we are focused only on the graphics drivers so do that update once you get there, and you are done!

Here are links to the top 9 computer manufacturers.  Each is a clickable link that will take you to their update driver site.  We have also provided you a very basic understanding of what you need to do once you get to their update pages, this information is accurate as of March 2014.

So, find your manufacturer on the list, read the institutions and click the link to get started.   OR show this to your IT person and have them do it.

  • Call your IT and ask for help
  • Ask for help on your PC Manufactures’ Website – tell them your make and model and that you want to update your graphics drivers
