Possibility of Malware attacks
You need to consider the possibility of malware attacks while installing the video drivers to the system. If the system contains malwares, then those malwares might affect the video drivers that you are installing to the system. The codes in the software would be modified with these malwares in the system. To avoid this sort of issue, you need to scan the system properly. Any of the powerful antivirus software could do this scanning.
The memory capacity available in the system is also a factor that you need to consider during the installation of video drivers. If the driver you have selected for installation is an advanced one that would definitely need more memory than the normal video drivers. The insufficiency of the memory in the system would block the installation process. So check the free memory space in the system before installing video drivers to the system.
If the system already contains any of the video drivers, then you have to remove that driver properly from the system. If any of the components of old driver resides in the system, then also the driver installation will fail and the system might show error messages due to the driver conflicts. So, check whether any of the components of the old driver exists in the system before installing the old driver.
