How to upgrade drivers for my graphics card in Windows 10?

Problems with drivers are one of the main causes of different graphics card errors. Therefore, fixing the problem will return the device to a working state. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open the Windows Start menu with the right mouse button or hold the Win + X keys.
  2. Enter “Device Manager” to see the list of your video card drivers.
  3. Find “Display Adapters” and tap on the arrow to see more options.
  4. Right-click a particular driver and select Properties.
  5. Visit the “Driver” section and then click “Update Driver”.
  6. Choose the option to search for drivers automatically.
  7. When Windows installs all the drivers, reboot your device.

Why is my Nvidia video card not functioning well?

Many users are wondering why the Nvidia graphics card suddenly crashes. Here are the main reasons:

  • Non-compliance with the operating modes recommended by the manufacturer;
  • Poor ventilation;
  • Overheat due to dust accumulation or dry thermal paste;
  • Mechanical damage;
  • Moisture inside the PC or laptop;
  • Power supply failure;
  • Video card wear;
  • Manufacturing defect.

How to clean the video card from tiny pieces of debris and dust?

You can handle the task without outside help. Follow these steps:

  1. First of all, shut down your computer and remove the power cord. Then disconnect the monitor cable from your graphics card. It can be HDMI, DVI, Display Port, or VGA – it’s not that important, as disconnecting the cable is a quite simple process.
  2. Disconnect the power cable from the graphics card and remove the screws that secure the video card to the case. Next, open the PCIe slot latch and pull out the video card.
  3. To remove dust from the graphics card without disassembling the device, use a can of compressed air. It’s relatively cheap, and you can buy it in almost any electronics store. Use a can of compressed air to remove dust from the heatsink, fans, and any other dirty areas. You can also use a regular vacuum cleaner or blow out the graphics card with the force of your lungs, although these methods are less effective. To clean hard-to-get places, use a brush (for example, cosmetics or painting).
  4. Install the video card back into the computer and connect the power supply cable.
  5. Turn on your desktop computer to check if you fixed the problem.
