I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge e420. I bought it used off Craigslist with a clean upgrade of Windows 10, back when you could upgrade for free. I believe that the previous owner had it for a while then upgraded it clean to sell. It came from Lenovo with Windows 7. Specs: Core i3 2310m, 7200rpm 300gb hdd, 4gd ddr3l. My question is, firstly, is there a way to get a driver for the hd graphics 3000 on windows 10 for opengl 3.0+? If not, downgrade to Win7 or Linux? Also, Win10 is kind of broken. I changed the active partition when trying to dual boot (0/10 do not reccomend) and now whenever I boot i get error 0xc0000428 for winload.exe. I can just press esc, then hold enter until advanced boot options comes up, then press f11 to recover system, but that's kind of a hassle to do every time I boot up. Any help appreciated. Thanks! :)

(Also, I would rather stay on Win10 if possible)

For your open GL problem take a look at theLenovo forums here where there appears to be a solution for your problem -




As for your 'broken' Win 10 have you tried doing either a repair or reset install or, if all else fails, backing up everything and just re-installing ?

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
