    When ever I try to download my graphic card drivers it won’t let me and it pops up saying this won’t work on my pc even though I downloaded the right drivers and my pc is up to date.

    You have to supply detailed information about your a) computer, b) operating system c) graphics card brand and model d) the site where you downloaded the drivers from.

    If your video card (GPU) is nvidia and your PC is pre-built it could be that it wants DCH drivers and you may be trying to install regular legacy type drivers.

    I saw that on a YouTube video, Cary Holtzman couldn't get the downloaded drivers for a NVidia card to work and found out he had to have the DCH drivers for them to work.

    Wylieb123 didn't describe the processor in his computer, so we don't know which generation processor it has.

    I believe 6th generation and newer processors require the DCH graphics driver in Windows 10.
