Reinstall Accidentally Removed Display Drivers

Display drivers allow your computer to run with higher resolution and color depth support. These drivers are also required to make use of 3D graphics for games and video editing programs. If you have accidentally removed or changed your display driver, Windows 7 lets you restore a previous version of a driver. If a newer or better driver is available, you will also be able to download and install it from Windows Update.

2. Click “Windows Update.”
