Question: I received an error message saying that my video card drivers are out of date. How can I update my drivers?

Answer: One of the first things you should do when a game is having problems is ensuring that your computer's drivers and operating system are up to date. Out-of-date drivers and operating systems can lead to several issues that can negatively affect game performance.

A few things to note:

  • Even new computers can have out-of-date drivers and operating systems because updates are released routinely.
  • Some games and programs might run fine on a system with old drivers, but outdated drivers can still create technical issues with specific games or programs.
