Download Driver Easy to Update Your Video Drivers Now

If you just upgraded to Windows 10 or reinstalled Windows 10, you may want to update the video drivers. If your computer is slow, you can try to update the video drivers. If your computer get problems due to video driver issues, you may want to update the drivers. For whatever reason, you can update the video drivers easily. 

There are three methods to update the video drivers. You can choose the method you like, but please note not every method surely works. If one method doesn’t work, try another method until you update the video drivers successfully.

Method 1: Update video drivers automatically
Method 2: Update video drivers through Windows Update
Method 3: Download and install new drivers from manufacturers

Method 1: Update video drivers automatically

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to video drives manually in Windows 10, 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:

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

3) Click the Update button next to the video driver to automatically download and install the correct version of this driver (you can do this with the FREE version). Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

Method 2: Update video drivers through Windows Update

You can download and install the new video drivers through Windows Update. Follow the steps below:

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R key at the same time to invoke the Run command.

2) Type devmgmt.msc and press Enter to open Device Manager.

2) In Device Manager, expand the Display adapters category. Right click your graphics card and select Update driver (In some cases, this might be Update Driver Software).

3) In the pop-up window, you will see two options. Click Search automatically for updated driver software. Then Windows will find and install drivers for your video device automatically.

Repeat the steps above to update drivers for each graphics card if you’ve installed more than one graphics card.



Method 3: Download and install new drivers from manufacturers

You can download and install the drivers manually if you know what you’re doing. Both PC manufacturers and device manufacturers provide drivers. If you’re using a prebuilt desktop or a laptop, it’s recommended you go to the PC manufacturer’s website, as they will customize the driver. If you built the desktop on your own or if the PC manufacturer doesn’t provide the new video drivers you need, you can download the drivers from the graphics card manufacturer. 

Download the video drivers from PC manufacturers:

To download the correct drivers from PC manufacturers, you need to get the PC model name and the Specific Operating System (Windows 10 32-bit or Windows 10 64-bit ). Then you can download the drivers from SUPPORT page of the website. 

If you don’t know the PC model name or the specific version of Windows 10, you can find it out by checking the System Information. Follow these steps:

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R key at the same time to invoke a run command.

2) Type msinfo32 and click OK. After that, the System Information Window will open.

3) The System Model is the PC model name. In my case, the PC model is Vostro 3900.

The System Type is the specific Windows version. In my case, the version is Windows 10 64-bit.

Download the video drivers from graphics card manufacturers:

To download the correct drivers from the graphics card manufacturer, you need to know the graphics card model and the specific Windows version. Then you can download the drivers from the SUPPORT page. 

If you’re not sure what graphics card you’ve installed, you can check it via Device Manager. Follow steps below. If you’re not sure what the specific Windows 10 version is, refer the steps in Download the video drivers from PC manufacturers to get the information.

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R key at the same time to invoke the Run command.

2) Type devmgmt.msc and press Enter to open Device Manager.

3) Expand the Display adapters category then you’ll get the graphics card model name. If you’ve installed more than one graphics card, you’ll see more than one item under this branch.
