Hi, We recently bought my son a gaming pc but when he goes on to play his games on 'Steam', he's being told something along the lines of he 'doesn't have OpenGL'. Any idea how this can be sorted? Thanks.

Update your graphic card drivers. If you can post make and model of PC I will provide a link to the download you need to sort this problem.

OpenGL is not a standalone program you download, it is integrated into your graphics card driver. So refer to my earlier post.

Chronos the 2nd, thanks for your response. It's called Raider AMD X6 6300. Is that any help?

Is this your PC? DinoPC. If so you can either update your graphic card driver automatically here. Or download and install this driver. AMD.

Hopefully updating your PC's graphic card driver will solve your problem. Any further questions post back.
