This question already has an answer here:
I have a computer which is working fine after a windows re-install. However, I did not install any drivers at all, they seem to have been installed via Windows Update.
Back then, I remember I had to download the latest drivers from the motherboard manufacturer, video-card manufacturer, etc. Is this still valid? Should I download the latest drivers from the manufacturers, or are the drivers available via Windows update enough?
I am running Windows 8.1.
