If existing graphics devices & drivers are working okay you should not update them, leave them alone.
Updating a driver just because there is a newer version is not good practice.

Only update a driver if existing one is causing problems or if newer version adds new features which you want.

In your case, go direct to Dell's website to get the latest drivers, but again, only if existing driver is causing problems or has become corrupted.

Should you need to download a driver from Dell, go to their support section and enter your laptop's Service Tag which is printed on the underside of your laptop.
