Having problems getting my computer to play SW REpublic Commando.
It has been suggested that I need to update my drivers for the motherboard
and graphics card. I want to know what is the best procedure for doing this
and what steps I should take before attempting the update. Also, if I should
update one before the other,
i.e. motherboard first, graphics card second or graphics card first, then
motherboard.

First you need to know the name and model number of your motherboard.
Then you go to the manufacturers website usually under downloads and do a
search for your motherboard drivers.
If there are new ones you download and install them.Instructions are usually
on the website but the usual procedure is to just install over the old ones.
After that you do the same for your Video card....with one exception some
video manufacturers would like you to uninstall the old drivers before
installing the new.This info would be included in the instructions.

It's so much easier to suggest solutions when you don't know too much about
the problem
