Hi there

 

I am one level up from a complete computer illiterate i.e. I can very happily get by but as soon as I have to look under the metaphorical bonnet I am a tad bamboozled.

 

So, to begin.

 

I have a Dell laptop running Windows Vista.  The hard drive was replaced by a techie a few years back when the last one died.  I am trying to run the trial version of the animation software Dragonframe.  It requires that I have an Open GL 2.1 graphics card.  I am told that my graphics card is out of date but have no idea how to upgrade.  When I run the advised Intel Driver Upgrade Advisor it cannot find any to upgrade although Dragonframe detected that I was running Intel 2.1.0 Build 8.15.10.1968.  I would download a graphics card with open gl 2.1 if I knew how.  I apologise in advance for my lack of savvy.

 

Many thanks.

You can't download a video card you have to buy one and replace hardware just like how your hard drive was that is of cores if its even possible, on most laptops its not, best you can do is mess with drivers, you might be able to get a emulator or warper of some kind that can let you still play on older hardware though.

 

This place had a good collection of drivers

Btw whats the model number of your laptop, should be a sticker or some numbers on it somewhere.
