Firstly you need to know what video card you have. If you have Windows and I assume you do go to Start > Control Panel (switch to classic view) > System click on Device Manager and in the list find 'Display Adapter'. The name of the driver appears. Make a note of it. Go directly to the website of your driver's manufacturer. Follow the instructions to download and install the right driver. Restart your computer to let it take effect.

Warning: this is the manual way to update. If you are not a tech guy, attempting to change video drivers could make your computer inoperable or cause severe problems. As a result, you can rely on a driver detective software to update the driver issue automatically & accurately. This way also saves you time & energy.

Hope this helps!

Focus on the drivers for the video card first.
SlimDrivers will update ALL your drivers if you tell it too.
Update one at a time and make sure you allow it to make a recover point. Just in case a driver somewhere goes horribly wrong.
Good luck and hope this helps!

I recently bought an Acer 5742G notebook and I keep on getting a pop-up saying my video card is not compatible with Direct3D. Can I update my video card driver? if so, how?

You should be able to update your driver for the graphics card. If you can, open the Nvidia control panel. Then, if you look around in the menu, you should see something along the lines of "Check for new update". Just click that and it should lead you along to update the driver. If you can't find the Nvidia control panel, or for some reason the "Check for update" isn't working, you can go to this link to get updated drivers for Nvidia graphics cards. They even have an auto-detect graphics card feature.

I installed a radeon hd4650 and now I have no sound. It says in device driver that there's no audio device. I do not even show a volume control. Help!

Sounds like the video overtook the sound driver i would try and remove and replace your sound card or if it is onboard sound remove and replace the driver. Also try and find an update for the video cardthere might be an update on that issue.Best of luck.

Are the cards in SLI Mode? If so, that might be the problem. Since SLI isn't very well developed as of now, and there sill are some compatibility issues. I suppose you do have two identical cards, otherwise, the drivers may not work well. You should update the drivers when the programs are not running; generally, you don't need to, but to be on the safe side.

You can try removing the cards from SLI mode temporary if you really need to. Also, if the latest drivers you downloaded doesn't work, don't update it. If there are newer version, then try them. Often, the companies can't anticipate for all of the problems whenever they release an update.
