    Go to START, open CONTROL PANEL, double click SYSTEM, click the tab HARDWARE, under tehy Device Manager section, click teh bar DEVICE MANAGER, on the list that appears, find the entry for Display adapters, double click it, you should see a list of your display drivers drop down, double click the first one, click on the tab DRIVER. You should see displayed the driver provider, driver date and driver version number. You will see either the name of the graphics chip manufacturer(ie. ATI, N-Vidia) or perhaps the name of your motherboard manufacturer if you don't have a separate graphics card and the graphics are on the motherboard. Contact the manufacturer website in either case and try to find the latest driver for your set-up. Make sure you match your system specs and OS to the correct new driver.
