When it comes to the idea of updating your motherboard, most of us would be scratching our heads trying to figure out how to do it fast and easily, since there are so many drivers that we need to update.
Basically, motherboard is a piece of computer hardware that connects all the parts of a computer, including CPU, memory, hard drives, optical drives, video card, sound card and so on.
Now, when we talk about updating motherboard drivers, we are mainly talking about all the device drivers on our computer. Of all the drivers, chipset drivers and graphics card drivers are the most important ones.
In the following post, we will show you exactly how to update chipset drivers and graphics drivers in detailed instructions on Windows 10.
1) Press Windows key and X at the same time, then choose Device Manager.
2) Now navigate to category Display adapters. Click to expand it. Then right click the display driver that you have and choose Update driver.
3) Then choose Search automatically for updated driver software.
Wait patiently for the process to finish.
