1. Download Everest from he

2. Install and then run Everest.

3. Expand "Computer", then look in the "Summary" for your video adapter, in
the Display section. If the name of the adapter appears in blue, click that
and see if Driver Download is offered. If so, click that. If you can't get
any further without being totally confused, post back with the name of the
device, exactly as written, and the address that the Driver Download link
took you, if any. (Copy/Paste from your internet browser.)
