Ensuring your drivers and operating system are up to date is one of the first things to check when your game is experiencing a problem. Out of date drivers and operating systems can lead to several issues that may negatively affect your game.
Because updates are released routinely, even new PC's can have out of date drivers and operating systems.
Some games and programs may run fine on a PC with older drivers, but these outdated drivers can still create issues with specific games/programs.
