I can't install the latest graphics driver - I get an error message that says "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer." The driver recommended by Dell is ancient - Version from 2014, which is even older than the one I have installed (, 2016). I guess it's time for me to get a new computer. :)
