    So I ended up reseting my computer to factory settings because when I ran sfc scannow it found corrupted files and I was unable to fix them luckily the factory restore did that. But today after updating everything I was unable to update a few drivers so I look up what to do and startup repair was one of them, so I did that and got the msg in the picture. My question is, is there any way to fix this? PS: I ran /sfc scannow and the other restore health command. Also I’m currently running chkdsk /r c:

    NEVER use and drivers from Microsoft updates unless they are for MS devices.

    Always get them from the OEM!

    What happens when you click advance options?

    Yes, The issue is I’m having in game lag for my games and I got that msg with startup repair. I managed to update those drivers through device manager. So everything is up to date but I still get game lag and the msg when launching startup repair

    Startup Repair is used when you can't get into Windows, it won't fix anything to do with drivers.

    You can still use Device Manager, get the drivers from the maker of your Graphics card though, Windows Update can install the wrong driver sometimes.
