In this article you will learn to take full advantage of the graphics card by installing new drivers and Security and Privacy. The guide focuses on Windows XP Professional Edition, but you can use the same guide to modify other Windows operating systems.

Step 1

The first thing you need to know what graphics card you use. Most popular graphics card company ATI and Nvidia. Both companies have an excellent selection of products and excellent service. Once you know what graphics card you use, then the company’s Web site, which can directly download the latest drivers.

Drivers are the software that manages the video card, printer or scanner correctly. With drivers for problems that can arise with modern PC games are updated. I recently had to update my driver to a problem I had with a game that I had recently bought for correction, and this solved my problem.

Well, once the drivers downloaded video card make sure you create a restore point with System Restore. This can be done my click Start-> Programs-> Accessories-> System Tools and System Restore. Then follow the instructions to create a restore point screen. This ensures that if a problem occurs after installing the new driver, you can return to the restore point to see if the problem is that the drivers you have installed.

Once you’ve finished creating the restore point, install the drivers. This can be accessed by double clicking the downloaded file and follow the instructions on the screen. Once you have installed the drivers you need Windows for the changes to take effect on reboot.

If all goes as planned, you should see better performance for games and not have to go back to your restore point. If you have problems, use your restore point to go back and correct problems. If the problem persists, contact the company that made the graphics card.

Step 2

Make sure the latest version of DirectX. This can, by searching the Microsoft Web site and DirectX to do. Once you have downloaded the latest version, you need to create another restore point. One person I know installed the latest version of DirectX and then had problems in the future, and why not create a restore point, they could not solve the problem and who uses his computer to reformat the drive to solve the problem. Once more to create a restore point, go to Start-> Programs-> Accessories-> System Tools and click System Restore.

Once you’ve created the restore point install the latest version of DirectX, double click the file you just downloaded. Follow the instructions and once it is, you have to restart Windows.

Step 3

This step will guide you through settings in Windows XP. The first step is to change the power of Windows to these right-click My Computer and then on to Properties-> Advanced-> Performance-> Settings, and select “Adjust for best performance.”

The next step is to get your articles on the right mouse button on the desktop and select Change properties. On the Themes tab sets the classic Windows theme.
