  2. Accidentally deleted graphic drivers ?

    I recently was going through my installed programs to delete some unwanted files. Being the idiot I am, I accidentally deleted the files for my graphic driver, NVIDIA. When I check my Device Manager, it says its there, but when I click on it, the device
    status just comes up as "A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)"

    I tried re-downloading the driver from the website, but an error message just alerts me that my laptop is not compatible. I will now add my computer is an Intel Core i5 processor, which was originally windows 7 before i downloaded windows 10. I have also
    tried to download the intel graphics driver, but to no avail. Any ideas what I should do?

  3. Intel Graphic Driver Update

    Hello,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    We do understand your concern and we will be happy to help you regarding this.

    Please answer the below questions:

    • What exactly happens when you launch the game?
    • Do you get any error message?

    I request you to try the following steps:

    Uninstall and Reinstall the Graphics Card Drivers.

    Step 1: Uninstall the Graphics Card
    Drivers


    • Right click on Start menu.

    • Click on “Device Manager” from that list.

    • Search for the Graphics Card
      from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this device” you may select that and then remove the corrupted drivers
      from the computer.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and then restart the computer if prompted.
    After the restart, please go ahead with the next steps to install the latest drivers and check if that resolves the issue.

    Step 2: Go to the Computer or Graphics Card
    manufacturer’s website and search for the latest Windows 10 drivers available for the
    Graphics Card model and then install it by following the instructions given in the website.
