    How do I upgrade my graphics card so I can play on games?

      Hello,

       

      I tried to play on a game and it said I needed to upgrade my graphics card and re-directed me to this site. I get this error message:

       

      Product DetectedIntel® Processor Graphics 2000
      Current Driver Installed 8.15.10.2342

      A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer.

      The Intel Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver

      instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues.

      Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer.

       

      I don't know anything about computers so didn't want to take any chances downloading anything without consulting help. Am I not able to upgrade the graphics card on this computer? Heres some info about my computer:

      Can anyone help me with what to do in order to upgrade my graphics, or am I not able too? Haven't had this laptop wrong so I'm disappointed I can't play games with the current graphics card, hoping there is something I can do in order to play them and avoid causing technical issues?

       

      Thanks in advance, and if there is an opportunity for me to upgrade, I really don't understand any technical speak so please keep it as basic and easy to follow as possible.
