Well, my friend's computer's drivers are outdated(Well, someone said. It's most likely true.) . I've been looking for a while, but I don't know how to check what drivers he has right now, and I don't know how to find the newest drivers for this graphics card.

The topic of the post indicates you are dealing with onboard video.
Go to the computer manufacturers web site & download the newest drivers for the model of the unit.

"Outdated" in this context usually just means "old" - with an "old" chipset like the 845 you are likely to have old drivers.

The last driver release from Intel was Ver 14.10.3 dated 6/28/2005, which can be obtained from here:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Fi...x?ProductID=865

If you respond to FJB's query it should be possible to find out if the hardware manufacturer found any reason to issue updated drivers of their own. But many manufacturers just supplied or linked to the Intel drivers.

That is probably a good idea. Intel 845 graphics were "business class" - suitable for displaying general office & home software with modest graphics requirements.
