You don't say what kind of graphics you have. Or whether or not you
have administrative access to the system. The rest of this assumes you
do. If you don't have administrative access, you'll need to get the
system administrator to update the system.
To find out what graphics you have, right-click on the background and
select "Display Settings". Then click on "Advanced display settings".
And then click on "Display adapter properties for Display 1". And the
Adapter Type will be what you have.
Since you have a laptop, first try going to the vendor's support web
site and get the latest driver for your system. If you don't have a
laptop, or if that doesn't fix the problem, you'll need to go the
graphics vendor's website for newer drivers.
* for AMD: www.amd.com/drivers
* for Intel: downloadcenter.intel.com
* for NVidia: www.nvidia.com/drivers
Then find the new graphics driver for your system, and install it. Or
use the tool the website provides if it has one.
