Update Display Drivers

  1. Reasons when updat­ing your video dri­vers may be necessary:

    • Choppy play­back on videos.
    • Video plays in fast or slow motion.
    • Video does not play in Hudl Video Editor when pre­view­ing clips from a DV camera.
    • In the review stage of Mercury, the clips do not play back cor­rect­ly. They might appear chop­py, or in slow/​fast motion. If you get a source URI error, check out this tuto­r­i­al.
  2. Click the Start menu and type Device Manager.

  3. Select Device Manager and open Display Adapters.

  4. You will see a list of the dri­vers that are installed on your com­put­er. Typically, if you do not have a spe­cial video card installed only one dri­ver will be list­ed. Right-click on it and go to Properties.

  5. Open the Driver tab.

  6. The Driver Date indi­cates when the dri­ver was released. Drivers are often updat­ed, so if the dri­ver is out­dat­ed, it needs updated.

  7. Click Update Driver to see if the com­put­er can auto­mat­i­cal­ly find a dri­ver to install.

  8. If the com­put­er does not auto­mat­i­cal­ly update the dri­ver, fol­low these links to man­u­al­ly install an updat­ed driver.

    Once installed, restart your com­put­er for the changes take effect.
