If your video does not work, then you may wonder if a video driver update will solve your problems. Here is a quick troubleshooting guide to determine if the drivers are the problem.
What Do You See on Your Screen?
If your video looks ugly and very basic, it means Windows cannot read your video card and is using its very basic video drivers to provide you with some video. In this case, a video card update is absolutely necessary.
Do other monitors work?
Some people will have an extra monitor on another computer and this is a great way to test your video card. Therefore, try to find a monitor to use.
Plug in the new monitor and if you can see things clearly, it means your monitor went out and a video driver update will not help you at all. You will have to buy a new monitor.
How does video streaming work?
• If you cannot watch a video online at all, then you need to update your drivers.
• If your video skips while watching, then you need to update your drivers.
• If your video starts and then stops and starts again, then the problem is most likely your Internet connection
