Let me just be the first to say: Your system is outdated and the graphics card is shit. I am surprised you can play Steam games at all.

Anyways, to update drivers, you need to go into device manager, right click your display driver and click "Update"

You can get the device manager by right clicking my computer and selecting prperties. From there just click the hardware tab and select "Device manager"


good luck and hope I helped

Click "FIND DRIVER AUTOMATICALLY"

Windows Update will then update your display driver and you will be good to go.
Make sure to have an internet connection though xD

Doesn't say that anywhere.

After you select the driver and right click it and select "Update Driver" a GUI will pop up asking you to insert a disk and browse for the driver, or search automatically for driver software. Go auto and your computer should update the driver. If it cant find one then your computer has
either reached it's peak hard-ware wise, or you need to contact the computer manufacturer for the drivers.
