In order to successfully work with your software, up-to-date drivers for your graphics card are an absolute prerequisite.

IMPORTANT! The drivers must come directly from the manufacturer of the graphics card(s). Windows does not offer you the appropriate drivers via the device manager.

Intel

Please check first if the "Intel Support Assistant" is already installed on your system.
If so, you will find it on your Windows desktop at the bottom right by the clock.

If you can't find it there, it needs to be installed. To do so, go to the Intel support site.

After installing the "Intel Support Assistant" you will be able to check if newer drivers are available.

 If so, please download and install them.

If you are prompted to restart the system, please do so. Only then the driver will be fully operational. If your driver is up to date, you will see this message.

Nvidia

Please check first if the utility "NVIDIA Experience" is already installed on your system.
If so, you can find it as an icon on your Windows desktop or amongst your software.

If you can't find it there, it needs to be installed.
To do so, go to the Nvidia Support site and download the assistant.

Now register with NVIDIA or log in.

Now you can use the assistant to check availability of newer drivers.
Make sure that you are working with "Game Ready Driver".

If your driver is up to date, you will see this message.

AMD

Please check first if the utility "Radeon Software" is already installed on your system. 
If so, you will find it on your Windows desktop at the bottom right by the clock.

If you can't find it there, it needs to be installed. To do this go here to the AMD support site to install the "Radeon Software".

After the installation you can then check, whether or not current drivers are available for your System. To do so, you need first to close the start screen.

In the "Home" area you can start the "Check for update".

If available , download and install the new drivers.

If your driver is up to date, you will see this message.
