1.       Start by switching off your computer. You need to open the CPU of your computer for upgrading the Graphic Card. So be sure to cut the electric supply to the CPU to avoid shock. Also, you need to watch out for static shock when you are working inside the CPU. Touch your screwdriver on the ground before using it on the machine.
2.       Continue by opening the CPU and locating the graphics card slots. If you don’t know how to go about it, refer your computer manual. Before you make the purchase of the graphics card, go through the manual to know the model. There are plenty of models of Graphic Cards out there, so you need to be careful with your choice. If you don’t choose the right one, it will not work on your computer.
3.       Insert the graphics card into the respective slot. Recheck to make sure that it is properly in place. Close the cover of your CPU and tighten the screws.
4.       Switch on your computer. Check if your Windows is able to detect the newly installed graphic card. If things are ok, install the appropriate drivers for the graphic card.
5.       Click on the Windows “Start” button, Select “Control Panel”, click on the icon titled “Hardware and Sound”, and select the option “Device Manager”.
