Installing graphics drivers...

#1XxTwisted26xXPosted 3/24/2013 8:26:25 AM
So I'm a total noob at PC's and only use them to play MMO's. But how do you update your graphics driver? I have an Intel Radeon 3000 I believe.

Google search. Use the word driver along with your graphics card, download and install. The End.

So what I did was:

1. Control Panel
2. System
3. Advanced Systems
4. Hardware
5. Visual Drivers
- Check for updated driver and download


Is that all i have to do to update my driver? I havent updated anything on this computer since I got it (I still have MS Service Pack 1, I dunno where do update that either lol).

Also, should I update my proccessors? Like Intel Core 2430? And if so, what other things might I need to update?

Another dumb question... but does WIndows 7 only have Service Pack 1?

your task bar should have your driver already on it just double click and look for update. and your comp should be set up to update automatically

TC, I don't think you should be using a computer at all.

Not sure if you are ok installed the it physically or if it's just the drivers you aren't sure on. Anyway those links below may be of use.

Uh, you haven't updated anything on your computer since you got it. Something that takes all of 5 minutes and is part of the basic care of a computer.

Not a giant PC ego, just a basic grasp of computer knowledge.


To give you an idea, it would be similar to someone saying they've had their car for years and never taken it in for maintenance, then proceed to ask how to change the oil.
