How to Fix OpenGL Problems in Windows 10
Windows 10 is still new operating system and despite major improvements, it comes with some issues and bugs. Users have reported OpenGL problems, FPS lag and graphic card issues as one of them, however, there are few things that you can do in order to fix these issues.
These issues are caused in most cases by lack of optimization of drivers for Windows 10, and this means that if you ran your favorite games smoothly in previous versions of Windows, you might experience some graphic cards issues in Windows 10. So, how can you fix this?
Solution 1 – Remove the display drivers reinstall the latest version
- In order to remove the display drivers go to the Device Manager.
- Find Display Adapters and click them to reveal the list of installed drivers.
- Now you need to find the graphics card driver from the list, in most cases it will be the only item in the list, right click it, and the press Uninstall.
- After the uninstall process is complete, you need to restart your computer.
- Go to your graphic card manufacturer and find the latest drivers for your graphic card model.
- Install the drivers, and see if the issue still persists.
Solution 2 – Download the latest display drivers and install them in Compatibility mode
- Find the name of the model of your graphic card and download the latest drivers from manufacturer’s website.
- When download is completed, find the driver setup file.
- Right click the setup file and choose Properties from the menu.
- Go over to the Compatibility tab.
- While you’re at Compatibility tab, find and check “Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select the operating system you want from the drop down list.
Click OK and run the setup file.
As you can see, most of FPS lag, graphic card issues and OpenGL problems in Windows 10 are caused by driver incompatibility with Windows 10, so if these solutions don’t fix your problems, you’ll have to wait for hardware manufactures to release new set of drivers optimized for Windows 10.
Updating drivers manually puts your PC to a risk, so we recommend you to download Tweakbit’s Driver Updater (approved by Microsoft and Norton) to do it automatically. Thus you will keep your system away from damage by downloading and installing the wrong driver versions.
