Check Display Drivers

Windows Vista/7/8

  2. Select Device Manager and open Display Adapters Alt text
  3. You will see a list of the drivers that are installed on your computer. Typically, if you do not have a special video card installed only one driver will be listed. Right-click on it and go to Properties.
  4. Open the Driver tab. Alt text
  5. The Driver Date indicating when the driver was released will be listed. Drivers are often updated, so if the driver appears outdated, it needs updated.
  6. Click Update Driver to see if the computer can automatically find a driver to install. Alt text

If the computer does not automatically update the driver, follow these links to manually install an updated driver.

Once installed, reboot your computer to see the changes take affect.
