Keep your graphics card driver up to date. It’s important. Most graphics card manufacturers release new drivers when a big, new game comes out, and some of our games will keep you from playing until you have the latest one.
To download the latest driver, you’ll first want to figure out what graphics card you have.
- Click the Start button.
- Open the Run dialog box.
