Yesterday morning, my computer was running fine. Nothing abnormal same rate if loading for various things like webpages or YouTube videos. The latter being comfortably viewed in 720p60fps.
About midday yesterday I saw that I could update my graphic driver which I did. After doing so, I noticed many things were suddenly not working. Firstly, the YouTube webpages load just fine but the videos stop to buffer every few seconds even at 144p. Then I noticed that most other websites would not load in any regard.
I tried troubleshooting myself but to no avail, which is why I am posting here. Any guidance as to how I should proceed would be appreciated
For reference, my graphics driver was Intel® 82945G Express Chipset Family version 7.14.0010.1132 and now it is version 7.14.10.1504.
Thank you.

explain this process in detail,

 

what told you, you could update?

 

worst case scenario, do a system restore to previous of your driver update

Umm well what I said wasn't precise. For another issue (irrelevant to this and minor) I tried updating my graphics driver as was suggested elsewhere to solve the issue. What I did is I went to Hps website, their support section and found my way to the drivers available and downloaded this newer version. That was yesterday and I can't accurately recall nor can I easily access that page because it isn't loading on my computer. Hope that answers your question.
Also since you mentioned a system restore, how would I go about doing that?

click start and type system restore in the search box,

 

once system restore opens, choose a restore point that is before the time and date when you updated the driver

Thank you. That is a feature I was unaware of, and that obviously solved the issue. Thanks again
