if you require assistance please provide the make/model information of the specific piece of hardware (GPU, networkcard, sound card, amd/intel motherboard etc) from Device Manager or dxdiag or devmanview .

Try to compare the manufacturer's version of the driver needed from (realtek, intel etc) vs the make/model of the laptop/pc (dell, hp etc) to see which version is the most recent or updated driver.

Suggestion is to update amd/nvidia motherboard chipset drivers > reboot > update network card, audio card, video drivers > reboot.
