Bonus Tip: Update your graphics card driver

Your graphics card plays a critical role in playing games, and the graphics card driver decides whether your graphics card can bring you the best possible performance. So you should keep your graphics card driver up to date.

Updating your graphics card driver can prevent your PC and your game from generating various issues like crashing.

There are two ways to update your graphics card driver: manually and automatically.

Manual driver update – You can go to the manufacturer’s website, find the latest driver for your graphics card, then download and install it in your computer. This requires time and computer skills.

Automatic driver update – If you don’t have time or patience, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Open Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan the problem drivers in your computer.

  3. Click the Update button next to the flagged video card to automatically download the correct version of their driver (you can do this with the FREE version). Then install it in your computer.

    Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

  4. Restart your computer to take effect.

So there you have it – Fortnite system requirements in your computer, plus the bonus tips to improve your system performance. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below and we’ll see what more we can do.
