Updating your graphics card may help resolve the issue you’re having. There are variety of ways to identify your computer’s graphics hardware. However, you can get this information right from the Windows Device Manager.

1). To open the Device Manager, press the Windows key to open your Start menu, type Device Manager into the Start menu, and click the Device Manager shortcut. (If you are using Windows 8/10, press the Windows key, type Device Manager at the Start screen, select the Settings category, and click the Device Manager shortcut.)

2). Expand the Display adapters section to see the manufacturer and model of your computer’s graphics card.

3). Right click on your computer’s graphics card and select update driver.

For some types of graphics hardware integrated into laptops (also known as notebook GPUs), you may not be able to get drivers straight from the manufacturer. You may have to get updated drivers from your laptop manufacturer, and they may not regularly release updates.

However, you can generally get updated graphics drivers from your graphics hardware manufacturer’s website:

You will have to select the exact model of your computer’s graphics card, which is displayed in the Device Manager window.

Some manufacturers may have update-checking utilities that automatically check for new graphics driver versions and alert you to them, such as the NVIDIA Update utility, which you can access from the NVIDIA Control Panel application (select Help > Updates) if you have NVIDIA graphics hardware.
