    Blender says I'm missing OpenGL 2.1

    I'm using an HP dc5700 64-bit machine with Win 10 Home. Keeps saying I don't have OpenGL 2.1 installed with the integrated video. Anyone know if this fixable?

    Intel Q963. Latest driver is for Windows 7, dating from October 2009.

    What graphics drivers are you using now? (Microsoft Basic, maybe?) In principle, 10 supports drivers as old as WDDM 1.0 (Vista). You may be able to get the Win 7 drivers to install. Or not.

    If I understand HP's information on the model correctly, it lacks a PCI_E X16 slot, so adding a more up-to-date graphics card is not a practical option. Sorry.

    Look for DanielK's Intel Driver Addon On , it adds the OpenGL panel back to the Intel Drivers that many Manufacturers remove , I used to use it on my Netbook to enable OPGL again.


    edit here is his site , I used to use his SoundBlaster Driver packs too

    I added an ADD2 DVI card but haven't been able to configure the BIOS to see it.
