Below my sig is a link to Driver Sweeper, download, install and run it. Check anything graphics related then clean, you will be prompted to reboot. When it has booted Windows will try to find and install the correct driver.
I am using window 7. So what should i do now?

Stand by. I'm preparing a snip for you.

This is the main window and I have put a check for my graphics drivers. Yours will say something else, such as Intel display. If you see AMD, ATI, or nVIDIA you should check them too. After checking (no.1) click clean (no.2). It will work a few seconds and ask are you sure then do you want to reboot. Reboot and w7 update should find a driver and install it automatically.

Did Update install a GFX driver for you? If so run it for awhile and see if it works ok.

After analysing, only 1 check appear and need to be updated. I click clean. Afew seconds i reboot.
After the reboot, no more updates... everything just went as normal.

I wonder am i doing the correct thing?

Thanks
