Here I have shared the step by step process for updating your PC/Laptops Graphic Card driver. Some games and software require the latest Graphic driver to run seamlessly on your PC, that’s why you should read this post.
Every PC comes with graphics card driver installed on it, but with time the driver starts to become old and after certain years it becomes obsolete. These days many new software and games require the latest version of the graphics driver.
For instance, Bluestacks requires the latest graphics card driver installed on your computer. Otherwise, it won’t run on your machine, and you will get face error 25000. But, it’s not only about BlueStacks. There are tons of other software (mainly games) which require the latest graphics driver software.
Anyhow, I think I have discussed enough the requirements and needs this, now let’s check the method below.
Updating Graphics Card Drivers on Windows PC/Laptop
So below I have shared my step by step guide (with pictures) about updating your Windows PC graphic card driver. Don’t worry it not at all hard, actually, it’s pretty easy to do, anyone can do this(if he/she knows how to do).
For this instance, I am showing you the step by step guide on my Windows 7 computer, but this method applies to all version of windows as well as 7(like Windows XP, 8/8.1, 10). So, start checking the step by step guide below.
Step 1: First Go to Start Menu and Search for “Update Device Drivers” and click on that.
Step 2: Now in the new window you will see all the device which are connected to your computer (Monitor, Keyboards, etc.).
Here under Display Adapter, you can see the graphics card which you are currently using on your computer.
Step 4: So, right click on Display Adapter and click on “Update Driver Software.”
Step 5: Next Click on “Search Automatically for Updates Driver Software.
Now depending on your internet speed, your computers graphics driver will be automatically downloaded from the internet and installed on your PC.
Once the process completes you will see “Driver Software Update Complete” messages, at this point just restart your computer.
From my experience, I can say that – an old driver can make you crazy! A few days back, I was trying to install Bluestacks on my computer. But whenever I attempt to install that software, I see an error message called “We can’t recognize the graphics card driver, you may need to update your Graphics Driver”. That time as a quick solution I choose to install some other Android emulator as an alternative to Bluestacks.
But, today I updated my graphics card driver, and now it’s running smoothly without any problem. I think you will find this guide useful, comment below if you face any problem.
