If I say for the fact that we all love to be happy, wouldn’t you agree? Well, yes, we do. Now, if we look back into history, it’s visible that the sole purpose behind creating games was so the people could have fun and relax from their stressful life. Certainly, I am sure one of your best childhood memories was with your friends or your cousins trying hard enough to defeat the final boss in your favorite arcade game.
Now just like before sitting into an exam, you do your preparations so you won’t have any kind of problems or difficulties during the course; similarly, we need to make sure that you are properly set up before getting into the fun part. Often people find this time consuming and irritating, but it’s better to devote a little time to get the right settings than to be stuck in the same frame for 3 minutes. It doesn’t sound good right, so here are 5 tips to make your PC gaming-friendly, which you can refer to if you want the everlasting smooth gaming experience. Don’t worry; it won’t take long.
1. Get to know your game.
So, starting from the very basic part, which I am sure most of us skip. Gather some information on what you want to play. Almost every company offers users with the must-have requirements. Once you know your game’s insights, you can be sure whether you are missing something or not. There are many blogs and websites available, and I am sure one of them must be having some sneaky tricks on your game. Well, I prefer ‘the video game blog’ updated regularly; it contains all you might be searching for.
Even though the developers provide end-users with the minimum requirements, some websites can automate the process. Preferred by many ‘Can You RUN, it’ is a service publicly provided by the System requirement lab, which automatically tests your system for your selected game’s minimum requirements on just one click.
2. Updating Device drivers.
If the game is a delicious meal, then drivers are like a spoon. You can’t finish your meal without a spoon, right? Updating your drivers is one of the preparations you need to be sure not to miss. This one is easy, as it will take a few clicks. Simply right-click Start>search bar>Device manager, and now you can update any driver you need to. Even though your Manufacturer will provide your system with on-time updates and patches, it won’t hurt to make sure nothing’s missing. You can either look at the bottom of your device or type the following command in the command prompt. If you’re having some trouble or if your laptop got crashed due to some reason you can visit HP Service Center Mumbai. They are the best laptop repair centre out there.

Visit your Manufacturer’s official website and go to my device driver’s page. For example, if I am using a Dell laptop and I have a dell tag/serial number as 987***1, I will just type the tag in the search section to find each driver which my device’s missing out of date.
