So you have been playing your favorite game (Angry Birds anyone ?) in your android or iOS mobile phone and now you decided to play it on your desktop only to get an error that reads something like: OpenGL 1.x/2.0/ renderer not supported or DirectX renderer not supported ?

That is an easy problem to fix.Simply update your drivers to latest supported display adapters.

Fix # 1

Visit Intel Download Center and use
IntelĀ® Driver Update Utility to automatically scan your system for up-to-date graphics drivers and install the best available driver.
