- Working with drivers First, you need to update the display driver, it is often sinned with this error (through the “Device Manager”). Secondly, it is worth reinstalling the audio and video outputs. To do this, in the “Device Manager” right-click on the output and click “Delete”. The driver will be reinstalled automatically. Only in advance it is necessary to remove devices from them.
