What is an mfr site and why isn't stuff updated when I get the computer?

Sorry for not being more clear. Mfr is abbreviation for manufacturer.

You have a Dell machine. I did not look up the specs but let's say, for example, it has NVIDIA integrated graphics (graphics built-in to the mobo rather than a separated gfx card). The first place to search for graphics updates is at Dell, not NVIDIA.

Now why do all of this with a new machine or component. Many times, often due to the time, from when you purchased the item and when it was built, upgrades have been made.
