4. Update your graphics drivers

Video games are graphics-intensive. So if your graphics drivers are outdated, you might get the green screen glitch on your NBA 2K21. To fix the issue, you need to update your graphics drivers.

There are mainly two options you can take to update your graphics drivers: manually or automatically.

Option 1: Manually update your graphics drivers

Manufacturers keep releasing the new updates for the graphics drivers. All you need to do is to go to the official website and download the drivers corresponding to your system.

Here are the links you can simply click to navigate to the download center. Just choose the one you need and follow the instructions to download and install the drivers.

Option 2: Automatically update your graphics drivers (recommended)

3) Click the Update button next to the video driver to automatically download the correct version of that driver, then you can manually install it (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Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.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 with full support and a 30-day money-back guarantee and You’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All.)

The Pro version of Driver Easy comes with full technical support. If you need assistance, please contact Driver Easy’s support team at support@drivereasy.com.

4) Restart your computer and start the game again to check if the issue persists.


So these are the fixes that have been tested working for many gamers. If none of them work for you, then you’re supposed to uninstall and reinstall your game. Also, if you have any ideas or questions, please do not hesitate to leave us a comment. 😊
