I have a ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series video card, first off is this an ok one? And second off do you need to continually download a new updated driver for the video card? And if you do, do you have to remove your current one before you download the new one? Any help would be great!

How to update a Windows hardware driver

I wouldn't bother updating to the latest driver unless you are having problems. If it aint broke don't fix it.

My husband plays World of Warcraft, and it is slow and keeps booting him out, on their support site it said to download the newest driver. And I don't know anything about it.

In that case it is broke, so you should fix it.

Have a look through the tutorial I linked in my previous post, it explains how to update a driver. If you need any more assistance or something explained in more detail then let us know.
